Media Reviews

"Although the subject matter would seem to fit the trash genre, Johnson writes with flair, intelligence and humor. Her characters are well-realized as she builds suspense as deftly as Stephen King." - Kirkus.

I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I decided to be born during a massive snowstorm. At the time, it seemed like a good idea. I am an only child, which means that I know how to play Candyland by myself.

I was always one of those reading and writing kids. After a little dalliance with astronomy (I had a glow in the dark star chart) and archeology (I had a little shovel), I declared my intention to become a writer at the age of eight or nine or so.

Even though I am not Catholic, I attended an all-girl Catholic prep high school. (This is the kind of thing that passes for a joke in my family.)
