Fay Johnson


I live "down under" in south east Queensland, Australia - & I enjoy writing, reading, photography, travel, seeing movies & going out & having some fun & good times with my friends. Not necessarily in that order!

Have a new husband to travel and roam around the area to find out of the way antique/book stores, we have three fur balls of fluff, who spend most of the day sleeping and/or laying about decorating the place; we look out at but don't live IN the Aussie Bush, so life is pretty wonderful right now.

Currently putting together my memoirs/autobiography - I just have to find all the bits I've already written and put them in order.

Cheers...Fay Johnson

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My first 10 years were spent in suburban Sydney, NSW - later we moved to a sleepy little seaside town in northern NSW - and after that to the southern downs in Queensland where I met my first husband. After we were married 3 years we moved about 100 miles to the outer Brisbane area. As I've had an eventual life which I am in the process of writing down, all of these places have had a huge impact upon me. From a "big city" childhood to a tiny fishing village full of restless teenage troubled years to a smaller provincial city where I reside now, I'm quite sure everywhere I've lived has had an enormous influence upon my writing, in the past and right now and I'm sure in the future too.
What's the story behind your latest book, "Pinky"?
"Pinky" is a brand new fairy story about a little girl who finds a pink spotted dragon egg. As I've always loved dragons I just had to write a story with one in it, this one has taken me a long time to finish as I had to find a fresh "baddie" - which took ages to figure out. This "baddie" Green Speckled Face is a combination of my sister and my Mother; my sister as she had orange freckles and my Mother as she was a super cook. But I must point out my Mother NEVER looked like Green Speckled Face. But maybe my sister did a few times.

A wee pink creature was standing on wobbly legs in its nest on top of its broken egg, and was perkily looking about its surroundings with curiosity. It was bald, with a shiny pink body, a paler long skinny tail and a short pink snout. ‘Not a bird,’ thought Isabella! But - it did have small wings, though they were held tightly folded in against the back of its quivering body.

Steve wanted to give his small sister Isabella the perfect gift for her birthday, a dragon ride! He stalked the Wild Dragon very carefully and waited until it had dozed in the sun – then just as carefully tossed a strong rope over its head and hung on tight.
