Author: Rutha Turner Jones
Rutha Turner Jones was born and raised in Fernandina Beach, Florida. She is the mother of two sons, Lawrence Jr. and Edward; both are endeavoring toward college degrees. She attributes her love for words to an older sister, who would never tell her how to spell a word or give her the definition. She would hand her the dictionary and tell her to look it up. Of course, that sister became a teacher. It seems as if I have been writing poems since forever and it has always been a goal of mine to have my work published someday. At the time I was writing Turning Point, I was personally experiencing my own turning point. Thus, there was no other title befitting this book then Turning Point.
