MEET DEBBY JOHNSON

Wife. Mother. Book Lover.

Yeah, these are a few of the titles that you can hang on me. As you can tell by the cute picture of our puppy, Pixel, I'm also a dog lover. Living in Southern California with my handsome hubby, and teenage son, we're outnumbered by the animals in our house. Rounding out the four-legged creatures are Coco and Sadie, our othr pups as well as Macaroni, our cat, and Zanshin, the turtle. No worries though, when my other four kids come back home to celebrate birthdays or holidays the humans outnumber the critters.

Here are some things that you probably don't know about me:

1. I'm a graphic and web designer. That was the inspiration for Pixel's name. Our cat Macaroni is not orange. She got her name because that was my youngest son's favorite food at the time.

2. Brainiac Zac was inspired by a real person. (Check the book's dedication to find out who that young man is.)

3. Pink is my favorite color. (Did you guess that one already?)

4. I'm a black belt and karate instructor. Interestingly enough, I share my birthday with Sensei Funakoshi who is the founder of Shotokan karate. (I think that's a cool coincidence.)

5. The first money that I made for writing was when I was around the age of ten. I used to put on an old long sleeved shirt and pound away on the typewriter composing stories for a family newsletter. I forced my family to buy copies.
