About Johnnie W. Lewis

Johnnie W. Lewis was born on an Army base in Kentucky, to a Naval Chief Petty Officer and his telephone operator wife. That incongruous beginning was only a portent of the chaotic things to come to the little girl who was named for her father (instead of him giving his name to one of her four younger brothers!). Seventeen different school registrations before high school graduation gave her a rather "well-rounded" background from which to draw her continual string of stories, always told with her tongue planted firmly "in her cheek."

Johnnie and her husband (always called "Better Half" in her writings) have been married more than 40 years and live in suburban Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia, near their daughter (always referred to as "Baby Girl"), son-in-law and PERFECT grandchildren (one of each), and their son (Little Fella) and his fiancee. "Critters" of every species live inside and outside their home and serve as a well-spring of inspiration for the fun, love and laughter in Johnnie's writings, whether those writings take an educational or tongue-in-cheek or romantic or whimiscal direction.

Review by: Jan Bernard on Oct. 26, 2015 :
Wow! First of all, this is a wonderful story that draws kids into the action, and makes them want to keep reading! It is a wonderful book for kids (and adults too!)

I loved the fact that the snake gave the author the opportunity to give facts about snakes to readers, and show snakes as friendly. This is VERY useful to help children learn to understand snakes, rather than be afraid of them.

I've read other books by this author, and humor plays a big part in her books. If you have a child who wants a fun and stimulating read, don't miss this book! I highly recommend it!!

King Rosie's Jewels by Johnnie Lewis is a delightful read for this 60+ Grandma. My husband and I have been marked by Netflix as a 10-14 audience in movie preferences and it must cross over into books because I really look forward to Babs' next adventure.

At first, I thought I might have a little trouble getting through the book but after the action began happening, I was hooked. It was engaging and I hated to stop reading to take care of life's chores. I could see Babs becoming a character equal to John Grisham's Theodore Boone with a bit more development.

This would be a good AR book for students in elementary school through maybe 7th or 8th grade. I wasn't an English teacher so I'm not really sure about the grade level.

Congratulations Johnnie. Well done.
