About Jacci Turner
Jacci lives with her husband in Nevada's high desert. They spend their mornings hiking through the sagebrush with their dog, Rosie. Jacci loves chocolate, babies, and coffee with friends. She's worn many hats in her lifetime: therapist, school counselor, campus minister, and mom. Her favorite hats are her writer and grandmother hats, which come in wild colors and don't fit too tightly. Jacci's first fantasy for young adults is Tree Singer. It has three things she loves: trees, a good quest story, and a young girl who has to find her voice to bring her gifts to the word! Jacci's first book geared towards adults, The Retreat: A tale of spiritual awakening, came out on Harper One. Jacci's middle grade fiction, Bending Willow, is about Riley and Mia searching for a father who doesn't know they exist. It is the first book in The Finding Home Series. Bending Willow represented Nevada at the National Book Festival in Washington D.C and was a finalist for the Wishing Shelf Contest. In addition, Jacci is the author of the Amazon best-selling young adult novel, The Cage, the first book in The Birthright series, and many other Middle Grade and YA books. Her YA book, Snapped, is about Snapchat gone wrong and how to stand up to cyberbullying. Her YA book, Cracker, is an alternative history and helps us understand what it is like to be a marginalized person. All of Jacci's books were gifted by a patron to the WCSD libraries!
