Kevin M. Turner was born in Portland, Oregon. He moved to Los Angeles when he was five and lived there until he left for college. Kevin attended Point Loma Nazarene University and majored in Philosophy and Theology. His plan was to go on to graduate school and teach philosophy to college students. However, after listening to his wife talk about teaching while she took credentialing classes, Kevin fell in love with education. He currently uses both degrees to teach Philosophy and Education to credential candidates.
Kevin currently lives in California with his wife and daughter. He has been an English teacher to middle school students for nine years. He began writing to give a fun read to his students who were reluctant to pick up a book. The Magi, Kevin’s first young adult fantasy novel, was inspired after he gave his students a survey on what elements of fiction they wanted to read.
The Magi is available as an e-book and paperback on Amazon. It’s also available as an e-book on barnesandnoble.com. He is currently working on the sequel entitled The Sphere, coming out soon.
When Kevin is not writing, he enjoys golfing and cycling. He is also a shameless USC football fan and roots for most Los Angeles sports teams.
