About Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson is an Australian author who lives in Brisbane with his wife and their little girl. His books blend the esoteric mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, with a dash of Twilight Zone, and a twist of dry humour. He has published numerous short stories and novels, and many more to come.

Chris Johnson's story and book ideas come from a rich background as a stage magician, mentalist, psychic, and even a computer systems programmer!

His first book, Twelve Strokes of Midnight, is a collection of short stories, steeped in twists and turns, containing threads he says may lead into his other works and even each other. Each short story in the Devil's dozen coincides with a clock strike, drawing you into the witching hour and the impending horrors watching you from the shadows. It contains Easter Eggs, just like a DVD, personal messages to friends, family, and his beloved readers.

His novel, Dead Cell, has been compared to the writing of "early Dean Koontz" for its supernatural content, and its vibrant and likeable characters working together to the final outcome.

Review by: SageWrittenWord on Jan. 10, 2018 :
In a way, this book felt like a longer, more action-packed TAC ad. There's a clear message here - don't use your mobile phone while driving. That message was right on the verge of being preachy, but it's woven into the fabric of a story with a strong narrative structure, likeable lead characters in Craig and Brianna, and with good use of the paranormal. It's an engaging story with a strong hook to lead into the next book. A recommended read.

Review by: D.D. Scarlet on Dec. 27, 2017 :
Working as a psychic sometimes myself, I was excited to read this book and I wasn't disappointed. There was plenty of Spirit and paranormal action, and frankly, their personalities were just as deep and tangible as the living characters in the story. I especially liked Emily, the hero's spirit sidekick.

If you are into this stuff personally, there is a lot of realism between these pages, intermingled of course with enough poetic licence to make for a great read. But as well as the paranormal aspect, the story in general was incredibly action-packed and deep enough to be stimulating, but without bogging you down. Dead Cell was a fast-paced tale about the potential evils and inevitability of technology!

Another aspect I enjoyed was the nicely cooked, realistic sexual tension which existed between the two main characters, Craig and Brianna. Then when Emily was intermittently thrown into the mix, it became quite humorous and I found myself chuckling a lot!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
