Chris Turner-Neal

unnamed.jpg

A Texas native and graduate of Tulane and Villanova Universities, Chris is a longtime contributing writer whose book reviews, getaway articles, and popular “Misadventures” columns will be immediately recognizable to CR’s regular readers. In the course of his quixotic quest to get to grips with Louisiana’s unique culture, Chris has embraced alpacas, eaten insects, and explored language revitalization, mushroom foraging, and the gravity detector of Livingston Parish. He continues to ramble and amble around the Mid-South.
