Authors from A to Z: J

Authors from A to ZAuthors from A to Z is a posting challenge hosted by
Heather at Proud Book Nerd. The challenge is simple: each day for the month of June (except Sundays) share your favorite authors whose last name corresponds to the letter for that day.

How I'm participating in the challenge:
This year I am going to try to highlight just one author each day that I am really taken with. If I can't come up with one, it may be a book, a song, or a surprise!

Maureen Johnson. How does one begin to describe Maureen Johnson? I guess I'll start by saying that if you do not know who Maureen Johnson is, you should. You should also buy her books, stalk her Twitter, and read her rants. She's like a neon, magnet-creating, word-breathing dragon that drives a flying crazy train. Yes, she's that awesome.

Her books are awesome too. I enjoyed the first book in her Scarlett series and absolutely loved her supernatural novel The Name of the Star (my review here). I'm also looking forward to 13 Little Blue Envelopes, which is waiting to be read on my Kindle. She has something out there for everyone, including Devilish and The Bermudez Triangle. If you aren't devouring her words, both in and outside of her books, you are missing the boat being captained by a neon dragon. Do you really want to miss the boat captained by a neon dragon? I didn't think so.

  1. Now following her on Twitter! I can't say that I've heard of her, but I'll definitely check her out now! :)


Thank you for reading!
