A Conversation With Sherri Wilson Johnson

Sherri Wilson Johnson is a multi-published novelist, virtual assistant, self-publishing coach, and a Georgia peach to her core. She and her husband are empty-nesters, and her Chihuahua is her writing partner. She loves spending time with family and friends, reading, going to the beach, researching her family tree, and swimming.

How do you pick the location/setting of your romantic suspense novels?
Sherri: I wanted to establish myself as a Georgia writer, so even though some of my novels take place in Florida, there are strong ties to Georgia in all my characters. I’ve never lived anywhere but Georgia and haven’t traveled much, so I know Georgia. In Grafted into Deceit, the opening scene takes place on a dark and scary road, which happens to be a few miles from my house. I travel this road every day, and on foggy or rainy nights, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic suspense.

What did you want to be as a child (and did that dream come true)?
Sherri: I started writing stories when I was eight years old. I’m sure I was telling stories long before that. I’ve always wanted to be a storyteller, and I’m thankful God let that dream come true.

What is one of your favorite ways to connect with readers?
Sherri: I love connecting with readers on my Facebook page, but connecting in person is even more fun!
