Born in Memphis, Lisa Turner spent her childhood either on the back of a horse or reading fiction. At times she did them simultaneously. Flannery O‚ÄôConnor and James Lee Burke were her literary heroes long before she knew the term ‚ÄúSouthern Gothic.‚ÄĚ
From the experience of managing her family‚Äôs interior design firm, she earned a PhD in the peculiarities of human nature . . . talk about Southern Gothic!
More recently, she and her husband bought a home in Nova Scotia, where the landscape changed from cotton fields to lobster boats. She currently shuttles between the Deep South of her childhood and the wildly beautiful coast of Nova Scotia.
