Steven W. Johnson


I served 3 tours in Viet Nam. And my love of history, the English language, and voracious reading habits have enabled me to develop a voice that is descriptive without being overly verbose. I am currently Vice President of the Pahrump, NV Friends of the Library, a former president of the Oasis Writers Guild, Pahrump, NV and a member of the both the National and Southern Nevada Chapter of Sisters in Crime. I have edited and published a current events magazine before turning to writing full time.

My first novel, Not Much of a Crime, was written in four months by not wasting my evenings watching summer reruns. While the story is fictious, there are many things that appear to be taken directly out of life here in Pahrump, NV. My other books include The Curious Misadventures of Tubby Wexler, Private Investigator, Need A Job? Publish A Book! with OpenOffice, and my latest compilation of short stories, Long Tales & Short Shorts.
