Shirley Jean Johnson

Shirley Jean Johnson was born in Dallas but returned as an infant with her parents to their home in Mississippi. She graduated from East Ascension High School, in Gonzales, Louisiana in 1975. She then graduated from the Practical Nursing Program at Jones Community College in 1985. A writer since high school, she first determined to get some of her work published when a house fire destroyed some of writings, including New Orleans Style, her first novel. Today, she and her family live on a 21-acre farm in rural Mississippi.
