About Tej

????????Tej Turner is a writer of fantasy and science fiction. His debut novel The Janus Cycle was published by Elsewhen Press in 2015 and its sequel Dinnusos Rises was released in 2017. He has also had short stories featured in a few anthologies, including Impossible Spaces (Hic Dragones Press) and The Bestiarum Vocabulum (Western Legends).

Tej Turner has spent much of his life on the move and does not have any particular place he calls ‘home’. For a large period of his childhood he dwelt within the Westcountry of England, and he then moved to rural Wales to study Creative Writing and Film at Trinity College in Carmarthen, followed by a master’s degree at The University of Wales Lampeter.

After completing his studies he spent a couple of years travelling around Asia, where he took a particular interest in jungles, temples, and mountains. He returned to the UK in 2015 for the release of his first novel and since then he has been living in Cardiff, where he works as a chef by day, writes by moonlight, and squeezes in the occasional trip to explore historic sites and the British countryside.

He will probably get itchy feet again in a couple of years, and when that happens he has his sights set upon South America.

  1. Do you have any recommendations on stories about transsexuality. I really liked your story about Tilly (as I am certain you realised from my review). Stories in the fictional/fantasy/scifi categories are what I am looking for. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    • Hi Lise, sorry for the late reply!
      I don’t think I do, I’m afraid. It is not something I have read much in the speculative fiction field for some reason… when I was researching for that particular story I watched a lot of documentaries and blogs to try and do as accurate a portrayal as I could.
