When you have a love for literature, you can find a new adventure inside the pages of any book.
Author SJ. Turner had developed her love for literature at an early age. She found herself stealing her mother’s romance novels and tucking them under her pillow to read late at night. However, the first novel that truly left an impact was To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee—a story that has managed to stick with her throughout the years.
As a teen, SJ found poetry a useful source of expressing those deep emotions some teens find difficult to release. After several years she finally submitted a few to a poetry contest and two of those poems are currently published in a 2002 collection.
By 2018 a family member had suggested writing a book and within a few months, Contracted to Mr. Collins was written. Though it was written mainly to amuse family and friends, the unedited version was uploaded to a self-publishing site. Yes, unedited and open to the public.
I’m sure you can imagine her surprise to find not only was it selling but there was a consistent request for a follow-up book as well. That could only mean one thing, there’d have to be a book 2.
With the readership on the rise, there was only one thing left to do—the Collins books had to be pulled and reworked for a real audience.
Where to find SJ’s work
The Collins series has been re-released and can now be found on several platforms including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple Books, Nook & Smashwords.
Since the re-release of the Collins Brother’s series, SJ has written a short story with internationally published author Dorian Keys. The short story ‘The Fuse’ is published in his creatively crafted collection ‘Morning Star’ and is currently available on Amazon.
Though currently known as SJ. Turner erotic romance author, a new fantasy adventure novel ‘Immortal Treasures’ is tentatively set for publication in the late summer of 2021.
