Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
I’m C.E. Johnson but you can call me Carrie! I’ve lived in the middle of cornfields and in the Windy City. I like both for different reasons so I settled somewhere in between the two. However, the older I get the more I miss the country. I spent a whole lot of money on a Master’s degree in Communications, only to discover my love for writing novels after I graduated. It’s an expensive piece of paper, but it’s mine and I’m proud of it. I’m a wife, mama, dog lover, coffee addict, and night writer.
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
Sweet tea or coffee is a must. I write the best at my desk in my office. Sadly, its next to the playroom so I’ve gotten really good at writing while hearing “Bro! I just re-spawned! What are you doing? BROOOOO!” In case you don’t understand that, I live in a house full of gamers. It gets interesting.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
Meeting readers! It’s so surreal that readers want me to sign their books. When I meet the readers, it really fires me up to go write more!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Kristen Ashley! I love some Colorado Mountain Men!
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I’m a sit and go girl. I used to try to sit down for a long period of time and get the words in. But now, I’ve found that I really enjoy writing for small spurts throughout the day. I can write for awhile, then take a break. (Ha! Did I just say break? I meant go do laundry, dishes, or scrub a toilet. Ah, motherhood!) And when I come back, new ideas have usually come to me.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
My very first signing I had a reader who drove an hour and a half just to meet me. I was the entire reason she came to the signing. That is still pretty surreal to me.
