BS Johnson


I am a small town Georgia girl. I've been writing poetry , short stories and non-fiction since I was very young. Throughout school, I won multiple spelling bees, and always excelled in English.
I am a mother to 3, and grandmother to 4!! (I started at a young age, so I'm not your typical Granny!)
I love the outdoors, spending time with family, curling up to a movie or good ebook, or having family game night at the kitchen table.
I have two books in print as of this writing. The first is Maters, Taters & Grits. It's a short non-fiction about life in the South, with a hint of comedy and "redneck-ism". The second is Rhymes From Darker Times, and is a book of poetry taken from notebooks out of my past. If you're looking for sweet, sunshine-y poems, then this poetry book is not for you. :)
I currently (as of 2015) have a couple things in progress, but don't know when I am going to be publishing anything yet. My hopes is to possibly have one out later this year, and since I am OBSESSED with sunsets, there may be a picture book in my future!

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing little snippets of poetry in notebooks when I was just a kid. As I got older, and in my teen years, I realy started getting into them. I would fill countless notebooks with sayings, poetry, and feelings.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is my outlet. It's my "happy place". When I am writing, I am someplace else. No worries, no bills, no deadlines- nothing. Just me, my characters, my world.

    I am not even halfway and I love it! I can't put it down! It's captivated me! Good job! (Great grammar, too) :)

    The way this author writes.....bravo! What a flair for adding in subtle clues and tying everything together at the end. This book had me turning page after page, when I should have been turning off the light!! I couldn't stop reading it. Well done, Mr. Miller. If you want a good story with the flair of the old West, this one's definitely for you.
