Words have shaped human nature profoundly and continue to shape the way we interface with others. Even at their most elemental, they are a powerful form of communication. In any language, and in every culture, words express and inform our lives.

Fueled by a diverse background and her continuing curiosity, Catherine J. Johnson has worked with words as a freelance writer and editor for over thirty years, and as a writing and ESL tutor for more than a decade. She graduated from Vancouver Island University with a BA in Creative Writing and offers clients and students skilled versatility and, above all else, a zest for the written word.
