Chris Turner-Neal

author-47

Chris Turner-Neal is the co-author of three humor books (in very poor taste) and several failed sitcom pilots. He lives in New Orleans with an allergic dog, a rescued feral cat, and some people. When he’s not writing on books and film for Country Roads, he enjoys cooking, standing in the yard and threatening to garden, and travel.
