About the Author

John P. Turner lives in Connecticut, born in Hartford to a newspaper publisher and a visual artist. "Unto" captured his imagination as a toddler, instilling in him a lifelong fascination with language and a respect for all living things.
If a flea or a fly ever needs an ally, Turner's the perfect guy. A lowly worm or even a germ he'll surely dignify. This is the case because he's an ace at applying a useful tool: the practice of feeling how others are dealing-and embracing the Golden Rule.

Turner descends on his mother's side from three generations of commercial illustrators. His father's father -- an architect -- was an accomplished watercolorist. While Turner never struggled in art class, his focus moved toward design and construction to satisfy his artistic eye. "One Thousand Sheep" opened an opportunity and represents his first effort at commercial illustration.
