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.

"With just a bit more editing, Devilish would be very well written ... But, sadly, this plot is also a little too farfetched, making the characters seem unbelievable and faded." - VOYA.

After college, she became the literary manager of a wonderful (but now defunct) Philadelphia theater company. Soon after that, she moved to New York to study theatrical dramaturgy and writing at Columbia University School of the Arts.
