About Me

Yay!! I’m thrilled you were interested enough to know a little more about me to click the button. I’ll try not to disappoint you but unfortunately, I’m kind of boring.

I wanted to be an author ever since I was in 2nd grade. Mrs.
Pierce’s class. Crazy how I remember that but don’t remember what I did
yesterday. In 2009 I decided I had waited long enough, and I wrote my first
book, Stilettos and Scoundrels a Presley Thurman Cozy mystery. Of course, I had
no idea what I was doing back then and wanted to write romance but then someone
died, and it became a cozy mystery.

I write cozy mystery under a pen name, L.C. Turner, and
clean, small-town romance under Laina Turner. Laina is my real name and the C
in L.C is my middle initial. My middle name is Carole as was my moms and is my daughters.

I have 3 wonderful kids (2 are out of the house), I’m on my 2nd husband but
am still besties with my first, 3 dogs, and 3 cats. And no, no matter what my
daughter says NO MORE ANIMALS.

We’re missing 1 kid and 2 cats but this was the best we could do.

Here are the missing cats.

I am a cheer mom and a rugby mom. To the same child. How she picked 2 sports
so different is beyond me.

I’m not a good cook, though I can bake quite well (thanks to both
grandmothers). I’m horrible at interior decorating. We bought our current house
8 years ago, and all the walls are STILL blank because I can’t decide what I
want to put up. Well, that and the fact my husband and I do NOT have the same

I love coffee, wine, and anything pumpkin flavored. I like the idea of
working out but not actually doing it. I could stand to lose a few pounds, but
I also enjoy nachos. Those 2 things don’t work well together.

I’m sometimes a mess, but I’m also awesome. I’m not perfect, but I’m me. And
that is a cool thing to be.


Stay fabulous,
