Christian Johnson was born on July 4th, 1989 in Columbus, Ohio. Moving around a lot didn’t help him make friends easily, so he started writing about his perfect friend. Eventually moving back to Ohio, Christian graduated from Logan High School in Logan, Ohio. Not top of his class but not bottom either. Going to a local community college for game design allowed him to realize that he loved writing stories. Slowly writing things down and generating ideas, Christian kept trying to decide what he was doing with life. Eventually, he jumped into Creative Writing for Entertainment online at Full Sail University. He’s now set to graduate in March of 2017, and he is 5th in his class. He hopes to show his two daughters, Arianna and Coraline, that they don’t have to know right away what they are doing with their life. His wife, Kaitlyn, fully supports him in his career choice, which helps him strive to succeed. “The Year” is Christian’s first published work.
