BioID Johnson wears many hats: mother, wife, editor, tutu maker, and writer, to name a few. Some of her favorite people are the two little girls who often implore that she "watch me!" in the middle of forming finely crafted sentences, that guy who dozes off well before she closes her laptop, and those furry critters at the foot of the bed at night. If she could do anything in the world, she would live in Cinderella's castle and write love stories all day while sipping Dr. Pepper and eating calorie-less Hershey's kisses. For now, she'll stick to her Dallas-area home and spending her days with the characters she's grown to love.
After 16 years in education, Johnson has embarked on a new career, one as a full-time writer. This will allow her to write at least one book per month, which means many of your favorite character will have new tales to tell in the upcoming months. Look for two spin-off series of The Clandestine Saga, one staring Cassidy Findley and another involving backstories for your favorite characters. Johnson will also produce several new historical romance novels and a new sweet contemporary Christian romance series as well. Melody's Christmas, Christmas Cocoa, Winter Woods, Waiting on Love, and Shamrock Hearts are all available.
Her first non-fiction book, The Journey to Normal: Our Family's Life With Autism, is a true story of how the author's daughter has overcome the constraints of autism and has grown into a bubbly, bright, highly verbal ten-year-old.
Johnson published her first book in 2014, Deck of Cards, a medieval romance with lots of twists and turns. This debut was followed closely by the epic Civil War novel Cordia's Will. Both can be purchased at Amazon in ebook and paperback formats.
Recently, Johnson embarked on The Clandestine Saga books, five of which, Transformation, Resurrection, Repercussion, Absolution, and Illumination are available on Amazon. If you like paranormal with a touch of romance, you'll love reading about vampire hunter Cadence and the Guardians who protect humans from rogue vampires.
If you like interesting and unexpected, check out The Doll Maker's Daughter at Christmas, a unique look at dyslexia at the turn of the twentieth century. Johnson also takes us back in time to the Edwardian period and the fateful voyage of the Titanic in Ghosts of Southampton. The prequel, Prelude, is also available as well as the final book, Residuum.
Not all stories have the happiest of endings. If you like a touch of melancholy and mystery, you'll want to check out the romantic suspense novel Beneath the Inconstant Moon, set in Victorian Baltimore. Ginny doesn't know where she is, who these people are, or why they insist on calling her Mrs. Edwards. Where is her husband Spencer Hayes?

Love the Cover -- especially the design! Good description, too!
The gorgeous cover was the first thing to capture my attention. Love it! And if you love vampire sagas this is one book you don't want to miss. If you didn't know better (vampires don't exist, do they?) you'd think the author was writing from personal experience. Don't pass this one up!
Love the cover and the story sounds really nice.
Very interesting blurb that makes you want to know more about the series. A nice cover that catches the eye.
Nice cover! I also like your switch on character POV. Sounds intriguing!
A great series by a top author, if you only grab one book in this selection this is the one to get.
Leaving Ginny is a touching, romantic novelette which will tug at your heartstrings. Highly recommended!
