About the Author

Tanya Turton is a storyteller, educator, and mental health advocate. She fell in love with storytelling when she began to feel displaced in her own world and found creative writing. Jade Is a Twisted Green is her debut novel. Hailing from Jamaica, Tanya was raised and lives in Toronto.


Tender and heartfelt, Jade Is a Twisted Green is a meditation on finding yourself and love after unimaginable grief. Told from the rich, unique vibrance of Toronto's Caribbean diaspora, Tanya Turton gifts us with a tale that is bold, meaningful and moving. A sparkling debut novel.

-- "Junauda Petrus-Nasah, author of The Stars and the Blackness Between Them"
A deliciously queer narrative, Turton's storytelling perfectly captures the kinetic energy of Toronto while delivering a coming-of-age journey that hits you in the gut.-- "Natasha Negovanlis, actress"

Jade Is a Twisted Green is full of everything I love most: note-perfect dialogue, unforgettable voice and some of the most beautifully observed, sensory descriptions of Toronto since Dionne Brand's What We All Long For or Catherine Hernandez's Scarborough. Jade Is a Twisted Green is a gorgeous, insightful look into queer relationships and identity, cultural expectations, and complex family relationships. Tanya Turton is a powerful, incredible talent.
