Post Base Brat turned author
Introducing Gary Turner a former base brat turned author
he submitted a story about his motorcycle trip through Europe including Baden in 2011, which we published on our webpage ... p?Baden-17
Since then, Gary has been busy writing and getting his work published.

GARY TURNER author of the Blue Max Chronicles

Gary is proud to be a Canadian military brat. His father served with Princess Patricias Canadian Light Infantry from 1950 to 1975. During those years, the family lived in Calgary, Griesbach Barracks in Edmonton, Toronto, Germany and finally back to Calgary where his father retired from military service. At an early age, Gary became fascinated with the Royal Navy, from Nelson's time to the present, and he is obsessed with First World War history and Canada's military involvement in that conflict. He began riding motorcycles fifty years ago and tours on his BMW. Several years ago, he toured the old Western Front on his motorcycle, where the final germination for this story took place. Like the story, he reunited with his long lost love and they now live happily in Calgary. ​

I had a chance to read the books.. my review below
Wow you can not judge a book by the cover … At first glance I was not drawn to the books simply because of the cover, not into gambling and I thought it would be geared more to a male audience … but nevertheless I picked up the first one not knowing what to expect. I have to tell you I never read a book that fast, it really captured my interest and then of course I was hooked. Loved the story line and was curious to see how things turned out for the family.
