Buffy Andrews asks Q’s & Mimi Johnson gives A’s

Buffy’s write zone features a Q&A with Mimi Johnson, author of Gathering String:

Gathering String coverFinish these sentences:


If I knew… How much fun I’d be having in my 50s, I wouldn’t have minded how fast my 40s flew by.


I like writing because… I just can’t seem to stop. I think it was Dorothy Parker who said, “I hate writing. I love having written.” Writing is hard and I’m basically a lazy person. But damn, I love seeing a character come to life. It’s worth all the effort.

Rebecca Granshaw featured the Q&A as the lead story in Becky’s Sparkly Digital Daily for today, too.

And readers continue to praise Gathering String on Twitter:









Buffy will have to wait a while for that sequel, but Mimi Johnson is working on several projects, one of them another novel about Sam Waterman. Lex Alexander elaborated on Gathering String in an Amazon review:

“It was the perfect read to start my grad-school semester break: plot, characterization and dialogue realistic enough to draw you in and keep you there without going down any thematic or plot rabbit holes.”
