With a BA from Wheaton College in Literature, an M.Ed. in Speech Pathology and Audiology and a Ph.D. in Special Education, Jenny Johnson has been writing nonfiction for many years in her role as a university professor. She has coauthored book chapters, journal articles, and conference proceedings related to her professional field. Jenny prefers writing fiction and has pursued that objective seriously for the last few years. Her poetry and short stories have won local awards. The Taxi is her first novel. She is currently at work on two inspirational romance novels, Copper’s Run and By the Light of Your Face, and a children’s book with her daughter, The Misadventures of Eulajalylah Picklethwight. “My goals as a writer are simple,” Jenny says. “I want to write quality Christian romantic fiction that is worth reading, tells a good story, promotes values consistent with my beliefs as a Christ follower, and leaves readers feeling positive about their investment of time and money.” Jenny wants to provide similar clean and elevating entertainment today that Grace Livingston Hill did in the first half of the twentieth century. “If my novels can provoke thought about authentic Christianity through the actions of my characters, so much the better,” Jenny says. She and her family live in North Carolina.
