Hello there, If you've found this ol' profile in the far reaches of the internet, then you likely have read some of my writing and enjoyed it.

In that case, please visit my website to see my book series, the Blackwater Novels.
We are currently giving away eBooks for the second book, The Dead House.

The Blackwater Novels are set in the 1930s near the fictional town of Turpentine, Georgia. Get in trouble with the twins when they shoot green tomatoes in a giant slingshot, and dynamite a toilet with a cherry bomb. Explore the magic and mystery of nature . . . hear the critters in the swamp, sleep in a treehouse, find a hidden grave, and sleep on an island by the embers of a campfire.

As a boy I had the good fortune of growing up with the space and freedom to be outside, have adventures, explore, and get into trouble. A boy’s purpose in life is to have fun, and the tantalizing possibility of getting into trouble added spice to that purpose. I was also blessed with a rich heritage of storytelling from the members of my wonderful, extended Southern family. I share some of my family stories in the Blackwater Novels.

Thanks for you interest, and feel free to shoot me a letter (or email).

-Allen Johnson Jr.
