175 of the best newspaper columns she wrote between 1984 and 1992. (Future
books will contain later ones.) She is a contributing author for Chicken Soup
for the Volunteer's Soul; O, Georgia! A Collection of Georgia's Newest and Most
Promising Writers; and Nudges from God.
When Johnnie isn't writing or assisting her husband with his home-based business,
she enjoys reading, walking, typesetting, traveling, taking pictures, attending writers' meetings,
being creative, volunteering, and, of course, spoiling the grandchildren!
