Friday’s Feature with Kerry Johnson

Can she survive a blizzard…

and being framed?

Single mom Everly Raven didn’t just discover the murder of her friend—she’s being framed for it. Now she’s on the run from hired killers at her family’s ski resort, all while a deadly blizzard rages. Her only hope is her ex-husband, FBI agent Isaac Rhodes—the secret father of her child. But can they live long enough for him to meet their daughter—and clear Everly’s name?

Welcome, Kerry!

Some people believe that being a published author is glamorous, is that true?

Only if you’re J.K. Rowling or Danielle Steele. Giggle No really, at this point in my writing career it’s all about sitting in a chair and tapping those fingertips to the keyboard while ignoring laundry and dishes and all the books I want to read. Over and over and over again. Oh, and drinking lots of tea. If anything is glamorous in my writing life, it’s the tea. 

If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring author, what would it be?

This is tough because it would be a tie. First of all, I’d say keep writing more stories. Don’t be like me and write one story then edit it for four or five years and lament over why no one wants it. Write more stories, in different genres to see where your voice fits best. The other important piece of advice is to join writing groups to connect with other writers. I can’t stress this enough. Those friendships will carry you through the toughest rejections and keep you humble on the mountaintop, too. 

If you could do anything else, what would it be?

I would totally love to own a coffee and tea shop with a built-in bookshop and reading nook. I have no idea how to make most coffee drinks (I’m a tea lover), but the idea of a warm, cozy place to grab a chai tea and meet a friend, or grab a book and read (or write!), sounds wonderful. 

What is your writing schedule like?

My kids are in school from 8-3:15, so after they leave, I get the dog walked, do my devotional, eat breakfast, work on email or household chores, etc… then I try to write or edit from 11- 2. I have to leave by 2:30 for pickup. Those few (quiet!) hours are so productive but they go much too quickly. 

What is the theme or message of your book?

For my heroine in Snowstorm Sabotage, Everly, the idea of not being forgotten by God rang true. When life is difficult, there’s a tendency to buy into the idea that God has pushed us aside to focus on His other children. I wanted Everly’s character arc to show how that idea is false, and that God never forgot her. My hero, Isaac, struggles with low self-worth because of a rough childhood and being told he’s less than, so I wanted to show through his arc that God loves and values each of us equally, no matter our background or mistakes. I pray the reader takes these messages to heart as well.
