Shore Leave 38 Guest: Jim Johnson

Jim Johnson

Jim Johnson is thrilled to be attending Shore Leave once again. He writes and publishes novels, novellas, and short stories in various genres and subgenres of science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, and the ubiquitious 'hard-to-categorize'. He has contributed to the Star Trek fiction universe as well as a variety of tabletop pen and paper RPGs and other IPs. Jim has been an active member of SFWA since 2007, and is (Heavens preserve him!) a moderator on the organization's official discussion forums.

When he's not writing and publishing, he can be found catering to the Cat Overlords's collective demands; tinkering with LEGO brick creations; playing various console, board, and card games (Skyrim on X360, the Star Wars LCG, and Edge of the Empire RPG are the current hotness); contra dancing; playing djembe in a drum circle or drum jam; listening to the latest movie/television soundtrack or rap/hip-hop album; and working with various community theater groups in the DC metro area. Jim lives in northern Virginia where he makes his home with his lovely wife and several crazy cats. Follow his efforts as an outlaw publisher at
