Julianne Q Johnson writes in a little Indiana house when her three cats, two ferrets, , one dog, and one fiance will let her.
Her favorite stories to write are modern-day, realistic worlds with a supernatural or paranormal element. She enjoys taking otherwise ordinary characters and giving them a paranormal gift or putting them in fantastical situations to see how they will handle it. Though not comedy, there is a touch of humor in all of her books.
Julianne is a fan of cheap coffee and expensive chocolate.

So nice to get your newsletter at last! I was hoping for some news. My better half emailed you in mid-December with our Xmas good wishes, but I see you don’t open your email, so his words went unread.
It sounds like Louis is adding a new level of good-crazy to your life. So typical of you guys to take on a trouble-child, you’re really the best! I guess this is not for posting, but the only way I have to reach you (we refuse to use Facebook). Although, to be honest, I don’t see how sorting through a bunch of spam messages would be less stressful than reading emails. There must be something I’m missing.
I hope it’s true that you’re feeling better. We were worried about you. Our fondest best wishes for a better year, although 2018 set the bar pretty low. You know how to reach us if you have a moment. And, if you don’t, I’ll understand. Much love to you and yours from the two of us.
Apparently, I don’t read messages here very often either. I really am rather a hermit. Love you both! Me and mine are doing fine. I hope you and Robert are doing all right during all the Covid trouble. I’m not really writing much of anything lately, but I hope to get back to it soon.
Nice cover. You’re really on a roll. 🙂
Thank you! Some of my covers are better than others, but I’m learning as I go.
Just read Nick of Time and I liked it very much.
So glad you enjoyed it!
Hi Julianne, nice blog, thanks for sharing your stories!
Thanks for reading!
I’d finally had some time and remember to come and look for your blog… And start reading your book… But I’d started from the last chapter so douchebagness of me 😛 I’ll wipe it off and start from the beginning…
Hope you are doping well. I love you book and I can’t wait to read more (no pressure :-p)
I meant doing well not doping well… Lol
Lol! Nope, no doping around here!
Great idea for a blog, about writing the book.
Thanks! That part is quite slow, though. The best thing about having a writing blog is that you can write about anything!
Okay, sounds like what I’ve always wanted to do but too afraid to take the plunge. So, I’ll be cheering you on instead and once you become rich and famous, please remember all the people championing you all along. Moi included, of course! 🙂
I was looking at your blog today, and between your stories, recipes, and pictures, I think that you could definitely write a book if you wanted to. But until that time, cheer away! 🙂
Julianne, I am excited for you! 😀 I look forward to reading about your experience with publishing your book, and of course, getting the chance to read it when it has been published! I will also be sharing your web address with a good friend of mine. She and I are both in our infancy as regards writing and being published. I am sure she will appreciate your publishing experiences too.
Thanks for visiting me today.
Thanks, Lynda! It’s a long hard road, but the going is easier when you have folks to share the journey.
Great blog! I’m taking the same trip you’re on–I started a novel and kept at it, while that book became about something else, changing again and again and again until, at present, I have about 1500 handwritten pages, 3/4th of which has little of nothing to do with the story I now intend to tell. Turns out, I didn’t know how to write a book either. So, now I’m devoting an hour or so each day to plunging through those stacks of ten cent spiral notebooks from Staples back to school sales, making stuff fit. On the plus side, I probably have enough material for a trilogy, except that much of what doesn’t fit doesn’t fit for a reason. In the mean time, I’ve started this blog just to keep writing outside of the ridiculous novel project, and to set free the few excerpts and bad poems of my misspent youth–along with some new stuff. Have fun. It’s nice to know I’m not alone out here.
The first novel length story is always the hardest. As you continue to write, things begin to coalesce and you find yourself not straying as far afield. But no writing is ever wasted! It’s how we grow and learn, and discover we might have a trilogy on our hands!
Hey Julianne! I’d love to give your book a read.
Jack, I’d love it! I never asked because I didn’t have time to read your book way back when you needed readers. Nancy B did a read through for me, but I could certainly use another writer’s opinion!
I’m excited for you and looking forward to your success! Every writer who succeeds is an encouragement to others. Best wishes!
Thank you so much! I know it will take time and a whole lot of luck, but I’m going to give it my best shot!
Every time I get that idea about writing a book into my head I usually feel the same, after first few chapters it is all BS. I usually keep the pathetic attempts so I can read them later. I have found stories and poems years later and I think they are so great! Sometimes I am not sure if I wrote them, because I seem to forget everything I write. I am in the zone when I write so I can’t tell my writing apart from my thinking and I think so much that I just can’t remember all of it. Crazy. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! ❤
It’s funny, having spoken to, and read posts by, quite a few writers, I have found that most writers seem a bit bipolar about their work. One moment we’ll think it is all awesome, and the next we’ll think everything we ever wrote sucks! I expect it is because writers get too close to their work not to be at least somewhat emotional about it. Thanks for stopping by! I enjoyed your first post!
Congratulations! I’m one of those folks who was a lurker when I first read your fics. I’ve always enjoyed your writing, have read most of your stories several times, and was more than a little disappointed when it seemed like you weren’t in fandom anymore. Imagine my surprise today when I saw that you’d posted the final chapter of Madness on TPP. I’m so excited, and can’t wait to read through the whole thing again. But first I checked your Author Note on the last chapter, and then wanted to see what you were up to these days. While I’ll miss you on the sshg or ss/oc circuit, I’m eager to read your o-fics, and wish you all the best in publishing them!
So nice to see you here! I loved the time I spent sharing stories in the Potterverse, but book seven really took the heart out of it for me. Now I’m glad that I can share something else. I’ve really missed it!
