Berni Johnson began her career at age six, when she crayoned a book about her mom that received a rave review from its lone reader. In her youth, she dabbled in computer programming on her Atari 1200XL, leading to an IT career in adulthood. But she never gave up her writing habit. Instead, she combined the two skills and wrote over 50 technology articles for HowStuffWorks.com. When she's not watching TV or glued to her phone, she studies history, science, politics, and language, reads and writes fiction, and does the bidding of her terrier. Berni holds a BA in English literature and an MA in English with a concentration in humanities computing from the University of Georgia. But her pup Molly cares not for her stuffy credentials and prizes her door-opening and treat-giving abilities above all. You can read Berni's recently revived writing blog at BerniJohnson.com.
