Author Johnny Ray Turner
Finding salvation at an early age has led Johnny Ray Turner on a lifetime journey with the presence of God in his life. He won several awards for writing as a youth and had his own comic strip about Christian young adult life in his college’s newspaper. Recently Johnny has self-published his first book, James and the Medal of Honor, and has illustrated his first children’s book, How To Get A Gorilla Out Of Your House.
While searching for good Christian fiction for his own children, Johnny found very little on the bookshelves. It is his prayer that the books he writes will give an entertaining perspective that although we may not be perfect, in the hands of a perfect God we can all learn life’s lessons and serve his perfect will.
While moving from a coastal city to the Appalachian mountains, James loses his most valued possession, his deceased father’s Medal of Honor. While searching for the medal, he finds so much more in this delightful story told through the eyes of three adolescents. James, May, and Dana will need all the help they can get to navigate their way through their friendship, middle school, and life together. With a little help from above, they just might make it.
