A.Paj Turner, born in 1971, was raised on the South Side of Chicago, where he resided until joining the military at nineteen years old. After 28 years of faithful service in both the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army, Turner earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management and retired honorably.
A trailblazer, he is the first African-American to achieve the rank of Chief Warrant Officer Five in the U.S. Army Transportation Corps. Pinned as an awesome storyteller by his two daughters, Turner has the ability to captivate his audience by transforming them into a fly on the wall as they witness his stories unfold.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, he started writing to occupy his mind and time, and now it’s his passion. He is currently living in Tampa, FL, and he often visits his immediate family, who still resides in Chicago.
