Born in Glasgow, LOUISE TURNER spent her early years in the west of Scotland where she attended the University of Glasgow. After graduating with an MA in Archaeology, she went on to complete a Ph.D on the Bronze Age metalwork hoards of Essex and Kent. She has since enjoyed a varied career in archaeology and cultural resource management. Writing has always been a major aspect of her life and at a young age, she won the Glasgow Herald/Albacon New Writing in SF competition with her short story ‘Busman’s Holiday’. Louise lives with her husband in West Renfrewshire.
Her first novel, FIRE AND SWORD, is set in the turbulent period which follows the murder of King James III of Scotland, and the succession of his son, the future James IV. At its heart is the struggle endured by John Sempill of Ellestoun, a young man who finds his future put in jeopardy when his father dies fighting for the losing side.

THE SONG AND THE SORCERESS and THE NORTHERN QUEEN. CHRONO MECHANICS, a collaborative departure from more traditional fantasy settings into the bold new worlds of time and space, is her third novel, and will be released later this year. She currently lives in Southern California, where she spends a great deal of her spare time operating a taxi service for her two beautiful daughters. When not writing, she teaches English Composition at California State University, Fullerton, where she earned a Master’s degree in Medieval Literature in 1999.
