Appearing with novelist Casi McLean on her site for a few days. Please visit! I have opened a window into the influences of childhood on my writing style. Whoa!
Renee Johnson is the author of Acquisition, and The Haunting of William Gray. She is currently working on a Young Adult novel, while editing a suspense novel which has international flair–an homage to her love of travel and foreign food. She lives on a farm in North Carolina with her husband, Tony Johnson, and one very spoiled German shepherd named Gretel.
Terrific post, Renee!
Thank you, Jill!
Great article, Renee!
I’m so glad you liked it. Thanks.
I loved this glimpse of Renee’s background. I especially loved this line “There was something wild inside her, some spark of nature that needed the forest for nourishment,…” But I also enjoyed the story about her grandfather’s wooden leg. I had a relative with a wooden leg, also. Though I only saw him a handful of times, he quite intimidated me with his tall, domineering presence and with the thumping of that wooden leg that, unseen by me, marched through my imagination in a terrifying way.
