Getting to Know Your Writing Mentor: Kathryn Johnson
When I started writing with the dream of becoming a published author, I discovered something surprising. The most difficult task wasn't putting words on paper. It was getting honest, knowledgeable feedback on my writing. What was I doing right? Where were my weaknesses and how could I write better?

How Can I Help You?
I work with writers of all levels from novice to multi-published. Fiction is my specialty—novels, novellas, short stories—in a variety of genres. Among my favorites are romance, mysteries, thrillers, historical and mainstream fiction for both adults and children. I also have helped clients with their memoirs, biographies, and family histories.
Because my background is in education, I don’t simply edit material that comes to me. I work hard at educating and advising my clients, helping them become better writers and showing them ways to shape their style and their concepts to work for today’s publishing market. I keep in touch, gently critique, and encourage my writers to stick to a productive writing schedule. My clients know they can call on me when the going gets rough. We untangle writing problems together. Read more
