About

I was born with the significantly common name Jennifer Johnson, which is a disadvantage to a new author trying to distinguish herself and increase her findability. And yet, here you are!

Whether you’ve found me through Google, a friend’s recommendation, or — highest of hopes — my actual writing, I’m so glad you’re here. After all, an author with no readers is just a girl telling herself stories (or something).

Those stories tend to be fantasy, which I love to both read and write. Magic provides so much wonder and potential, don’t you think? Music can easily become a bird, as in my short story “The Mistake,” or a girl can confront a trickster god, as in my short story “Kailani of the Single Bell.”

As for current works in progress, I have a novel in revision about a narrator hijacking his author’s story — to the chagrin of its characters.
