About the Author

At age five, Catherine J. Johnson blurted out from the backseat of the family car, “ I can read that sign! It says 7UP!” If she’d been just a bit older she’d have celebrated the sign’s lack of hyphen. She’s gone on to travel an eclectic road of reading and writing, editing, tutoring and teaching. Catherine graduated from Vancouver Island University with a BA in Creative Writing, and in addition to her freelance magazine writing, editing and tutoring assignments, she coordinates an English language mentoring program for an intercultural society. It’s all about the words.
