Editing! It can be painful.
Can you give us a short synopsis of Run?
Run is about a struggling author, Charlotte Marshall, who is desperate for inspiration. She remembers a news story from when she was a child. She starts to research the news story. Before she knows it an old news story becomes a mystery she can’t let go of. The more she uncovers the uglier it gets. As she learns about the mystery a killer learns about her. Soon she is on the run with a killer on her heels.
What inspired you to write this book?
One part of the story is based on truth. I do distinctly remember a news story about a murdered girl from when I was child. From that point the story just flowed. The story is also about learning to trust yourself and rely on your instincts.
How many hours per day do you spend on writing?
I write at least 500 words a day. The amount of time varies.
Name your top five favourite books.
This is so hard. I have so many favorites! The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Killer Angels, And Then There Were None, Montana Sky, and Ender’s Game
What are you working on now?
Well the third Charlotte Marshall Mystery, Redemption, came out yesterday so that has been taking a lot of my time. I am also working on a stand alone suspense/thriller titled Them.
Author: Becky Johnson
Genre: Mystery / Suspense
A decades old mystery and a deadly game of cat and mouse will change Charlotte Marshall forever.
Charlotte has a good life: friends, family, a successful career. Her perfect life is destroyed when research for a book and a connection from her past plunges her into the middle of her worst nightmare.
On the run, with no one to trust, Charlotte begins to unravel the work of a sadistic murderer. Afraid and alone, she will learn the meaning of trust and just when to run.
Run is Becky Johnson’s first published novel, but not her first book. Books are Becky’s passion and always have been. She used to get in trouble in school for reading during class! Becky has Master’s degrees in social work and history, and for her day job she is a social worker. In her writing she tries to answer a question that is important to both social work and history: Why? She always wants to know why people do the things they do or feel the way they feel. When not reading or writing she enjoys yoga, running, cooking, and makes a pretty mean chili!
