David Johnson, Author of Miss Alphie's Secret   Meet David Johnson
      Author of Miss Alphie's Secret

     David Johnson, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of social
      work at Millersville University. A native of Tennessee, DJ (as
      his friends call him) is an avid reader. He writes non-fiction
      in the public policy arena, and is co-author of a forthcoming
      text on social welfare policy to be released in Fall, 2011.

      This is DJ's debut novel. He wrote the first draft of it while
      on spring break during the time he was writing his
      dissertation. When asked by friends and family members
      who had read Miss Alphie's Secret about the identities of
      the characters, DJ responded that "all of the characters
      are, in some way, me."

                                            DJ is an alumnus of The University of Texas at Austin, and
                                            an avid Longhorn football fan! (Hook 'em Horns!) He earned
                                            his Masters of Social Work from The University of Southern
                                            Mississippi in Hattiesburg.

                                           DJ is already busy on the sequel to Miss Alphie's Secret, a
                                           novel set primarily in Paris and the surrounding French
                                           countryside. The sequel, titled Omega Burning, is scheduled
                                           to be completed and released in late 2011. Sign up at the

                                           Omega Burning is published.

                                        DJ has three younger brothers, five nieces, and four
                                           nephews. He lives in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch
                                           country with his loyal companion Dr. Nicodemus, who
                                           appears as young Charlie Nutterman's dog—and faithful
                                           sidekick—in Miss Alphie's Secret.
