About the Author
Bernadette “Berni” Johnson began her career at age six, when she crayoned a book about her mom that received a rave review from its lone reader. In her youth, she devoured the entire sci-fi section of the local library and dabbled in computer programming (and gaming) on an Atari 1200, leading to an IT career in adulthood.
She also kept one foot in humanities and literature, earned a couple of English degrees, and continued to write. Her works include over fifty technology articles for HowStuffWorks.com, The Big Book of Spy Trivia from Ulysses Press, and several short stories published here and there, as well as books and stories soon to come out.
When she’s not watching movies and TV or fiddling with a computer, she studies history, science and other fun stuff, reads and writes fiction and nonfiction, and does the bidding of her terrier. You can read Berni’s blog and find links to her writing at bernijohnson.com.
