Hi, my name is Cal and I'm a book reviewer based in Birmingham, UK.

I'm married with two grown-up children and a daughter-in-law. :) I'm a full time carer to my daughter, Kirsty, and (very young) nanny to 6 beautiful grandchildren - 3 step-granddaughters, 2 grandsons and 1 baby granddaughter. Sadly my oldest grandson was stillborn in July 2012, but will always be a part of our family and will live within our hearts forever.

I'm a huge fandom nerd, beginning my online fandom life way back in 2000 with the Buffyverse. These days Outlander and Umbrella Acadamy are my big fandoms of choice, although I do dip my toes into other fandoms from time to time, including Better Call Saul, Lucifer, etc.

I love reading and am rarely seen without a book or Kindle in hand! Favourite authors include Rowan Coleman, Matt Haig and Jack Finney. My book reviews can be found on my Cal Turner Reviews blog, Amazon UK, Goodreads, LJ, Instagram and Twitter.
