Hi, my name is Cal and I'm a 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 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 Game of Thrones are my big fandoms of choice, although I do dip my toes into other fandoms from time to time, including Jessica Jones, Bates Motel, etc.

I'm ecstatic to have The X Files back on my TV screen, as I was a huge fan back in the days before the Internet took over the world. Mulder and Scully, oh how I've missed you!

I love reading and am rarely seen without a book or Kindle in hand! Favourite authors include Jo Nesbo, Kelley Armstrong and Jack Finney. My book reviews can be found at Cal's Blog (calturnerreviews.blogspot.co.uk), Amazon UK, Goodreads, LJ, FB and Twitter.
