About Me


Hi, my is name Ronnie Turner. I’m an author, blogger and lover of books.

A little bit about me:

I love books. All kinds of books, all genres – there is something to learn and love about them all. And so I decided to create a book blog and give a voice to what I have loved, learned and enjoyed about them (not to mention why I probably cried, screamed and giggled hysterically).

I’m also an author. My first novel is out with agents and publishers now (keep your finger crossed for me). I’m in the process of writing my second novel, a crime thriller. I adore every aspect of the writing process, from the researching to the plotting to the nitty-gritty of ‘Killing Your Darlings’. I’m a bit of a workaholic.

I live in beautiful Cornwall and spend any time I’m not reading or writing, walking the coastal paths and beaches. I love to do conservation work, litter-pick on beaches and walk my dog. (Notice: not once did the word ‘Book’ appear in this paragraph.7owdb7rh)

Ad Astra is the Latin phrase for ‘To The Stars’. Words have the ability to change our lives; They can give us new outlooks, new interests, new goals …  They can take us somewhere extraordinary – even ‘To The Stars’.

I hope you enjoy my book (Oops! I said ‘Book’ again) reviews as much as I will enjoy writing them.

Thanks, Ronnie x
