Hello, thank you so much for dropping by! I’m Maria Johnson (pen name), an author. I love everything to with books, words and writing! I’ve been scribbling down stories for as long as I can remember. I have two historical fiction novels and one fantasy/mystery novel for older children published.

Currently my third historical fiction novel is in the process of publication and I’m working on the 4th novel in the series.

Author Interviews

A few months ago I was interviewed on a podcast ‘Castaway Books’ by author Deborah Klee. I chat about 5 books that have influenced me as an author. Here it is below if you want to check it out!

For more info about me as a writer, you can check out an Olympia spotlight interview I did my publishers, soon after my first novel was released. I’ve also had a interview with with the review blog Across the Bookiverse’. Then there’s this author interview with historical fiction reader, writer and blogger, Jean Roberts, focussing more on my historical fiction.

Each chat focusses on slightly different elements of my writing and my books so you may find them interesting! ๐Ÿ™‚

Other interests

As an author, you can imagine how much I love writing. I also enjoy swimming, spending time with my friends and delving into a good book with a cup of coffee. I’m a Christian, so I love church and getting involved in wider Christian organisations.

I also love walking this one, my 2 year old Staffy cross named Chewie! He is very friendly and loves cuddles and cardboard.

Lovely to connect with you! Here’s another chance to check out my my blog, more about my books and my newsletter, where you can get a free preview of Lottie’s Locket. These links are also on my site menu.
