Barbe Turner

Barbe Turner graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BA in English literature and an elementary (K-8) teacher’s certification. Funnily enough, her teaching experience embraces both ends surrounding K-8. She taught both a pre-school (4 yr. old) class and a high school class called “Learning in the Community,” before becoming a stay at home mother of three. Her children are now grown and she is the grandmother of three. She is currently an operating partner in a company founded by her partner, children’s performer, Eddie Coker, and herself. Their company, okWard, is dedicated to educating both children and adults alike that it is not only okay, but normal to feel awkward, and that we are all moving in the direction of being okay with who we are. Barbe lives in Dallas, Texas with her husband and their three dogs. This is her first book.
