When Ginger Johnson was six, her mother asked her what she wanted for Christmas. “A typewriter,” she said. She didn’t get a typewriter, but instead had to make do with pencil and paper for her writing endeavors. Thankfully, she now works on an iMac.
Since those early days, Ginger has earned her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts where she won the Marion Dane Bauer prize. In 2014, she received Honorable Mention for the SCBWI Work-in-Progress Grant. Her debut middle-grade novel, A Splintered Light (Bloomsbury) was released September 4, 2018.
Ginger lives in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire with her husband the Gingerbread Man, her two sons, a coop of chickens, and a tank of doctor fish.
