Jeff Turner, a former college professor turned novelist, has completed his book “The Hero of Willow Creek”: a gripping and potent tale of a local hero who unintentionally sacrifices his privacy through a magnanimous act.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jeff Turner’s poignant tale illustrates the objectionable result of becoming revered as a hero. The unseen cause and effect of an altruistic act can impact the altruist in ways they may not expect.

While some people might find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, few have been caught off-guard like Ray Porter, an ordinary guy minding his own business. Porter had the misfortune of stumbling upon an armed robbery in progress and coming face-to-face with a drug-crazed criminal holding two women hostage.

A split-second decision on Porter’s part was needed: either duck for cover or find a way of getting the women out of harm’s way.

As one might expect, the tension builds early in Jeff Turner’s latest novel, “The Hero of Willow Creek,” and continues nonstop, providing enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing right up to the heart-thumping finish. Convincing characters along with a menacing undercurrent drive the story and make for a compelling and unforgettable read.

His latest work of fiction delivers a riveting and intriguing take on happenstance, showing how private worlds can suddenly collide with the unyielding powers of coincidence, resulting in lives being altered for better or worse.

Reflecting on his new book, Turner says, “In a matter of seconds the life of an ordinary man is changed forever by people he never met before. Complete strangers are thrown together by pure chance and discover that their once predictable and stable lives have been uprooted and in some cases shattered by chance or fate.”

Jeff Turner is also the author of the critically acclaimed and award-winning book, “The Way Back.” His books have been tabbed ‘engaging,’ ‘cunning,’ and ‘beautifully crafted.’

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase“The Hero of Willow Creek” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
