About Bonnie Turner (Green Bay, Wisconsin Author)
Bonnie Turner - one of the few remaining members of the Greatest Generation - was born on Halloween in Independence, Missouri, at the height of the Great Depression. She learned to read in first grade from the famed "Dick and Jane" readers. Many years later, her first novel for children (The Haunted Igloo) was published by Houghton Mifflin in 1991.
After her book was released, she visited local grade schools with a life-sized, handmade Eskimo doll, encouraging students to keep reading and writing - and offering polar bear hugs along with her autograph.
Currently residing in Wisconsin, she is a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her interests are many and varied, including astronomy, geography, history, yoga, philosophy, psychology, metaphysics and parapsychology. She's a self-educated jack-of-all-trades, a Mensa almost, and a classical music and jazz-fusion aficionado.
