Since graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte 2016, J.J. wrote her first book, The Reflection Within The Mirror (self-published), a debut book of poems, which won an honor award from the Black Caucus American Library Association. J.J. has received national coverage having been published in NY Weekly, American Reporter, and Kivo Daily. She is a member of Crime Writers of Color and the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors. Now, she is challenging herself to write her first fantasy novel. Ever.
"Reading is the antidote to ignorance and by writing thought-provoking narratives, especially in fiction, we can redefine the world around us."
"My first book was poetry. And somehow it won an award thanks to the BCALA and Biblioboard. Moving forward my focus is Crime fiction. Unfiltered drama, complicated characters and impossible situations. Pure fun to write."
"One of many emerging authors. What makes J.L. Turner's work stand out, is the passion to bring awareness to real-life issues through fiction."
A Riddle of Chaos
One calculated murder. Five nations on the precipice of war. Many crave Zeldin's throne. If the royal family, House Offonry, can't find the culprit and withstand an internal coup, the entire country of Belbourne will fall prey to an even greater evil.
