I am C. Marshall Turner.

I was born and raised outside of New Orleans. I’m currently splitting my time between Louisiana and North Carolina. C. Marshall Turner is the pen name I use to pay tribute to the extensive military service of my father’s family. I attained an undergraduate degree in English Literature at Louisiana State University and business-related master degrees from University of Oklahoma and The Pennsylvania State University. 

I served in the United States Marine Corps for over 20 years as an enlisted Marine and an officer. My passions focus on cooking Louisiana cuisine, researching Louisiana’s rich history and culture, and supporting Marion Military Institute and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
