The Adventures of Normal II
Joe Turner

Author: Joe C. Turner studied the Bible at a religious school from the seventh grade thru high school. Religion has been a big part of his life. He doesn't seem to be able to leave it out of his writing, nor does he want to. After serving in the navy, taking him to places like Japan, China, Taiwan, and Korea, he worked for TVA and the US Army Corp of Engineers for thirty-four years. He now lives in Ozark, Missouri, where he is pursuing his dream of writing.

Title: The Adventures of Normal II
Genre: Fiction/Adventure
Description: Normal, having sustained the loss of his surrogate grandfather, has trouble dealing with it. The chance to take a little bite of retirement, as he calls it, presents itself, and he travels to New England.

To his surprise, people recognize him as his new identity. He learns that his new identity’s parents where not married, and he only has the mother’s DNA. They tell him he has been murdered in New York City. When he finishes his business with the natives of Bangor, Maine, and leaves the reservation, he passes through the Eastern states and ends up in Boston, where he defends Mario’s cousin, who is suspected of murder. After clearing her of the charges, he tours the area in his quest for knowledge of the history of the nation of which he is proud.

By the time he gets home, he finds much work and intrigue has found him. It seems he is not the only one who has secrets. He becomes a surrogate brother and uncle all in one swoop. He thinks to himself, I may need another bite of retirement.
