About Jean Johnson

The best part about being a writer is the joy of entertaining others. Whether it's sad or scary, silly or sexy, I love knowing that one of my stories has given someone a good time. I hope this is one of those stories for you, too. Currently I live in the Pacific Northwest. Feel free to drop by my website for a chat.
