Hannah Johnson lives in Alaska, where she likes to watch lots of Netflix and write essays about how Jane Eyre and Bertha Mason should be best friends. Her books and stories usually involve inordinate amounts of whimsy, at least a little magic (or yarn), and lots of dorky heartfelt conversations. She has a master’s degree in English and a fairly eclectic sock collection. Sometimes those socks have old fashioned bicycles on them, or pigs, or pink ghosts. She is exceedingly awkward at writing about herself in third person.

Know Not Why is actually a bit of an anomaly for me, because I usually write female protagonists, and all of the projects that I have in the works right now center pretty heavily around female characters. I do have one idea that I've been playing around with a little in the back of my brain that would be another m/m romcom in a sort of similar vein to KNW, but it is pretty far down on my to-do list at present. (Although who knows when inspiration might strike!)

I also love the Know Not Why characters so much that I have every intention of returning to them in, at the very least, another sequel story or two somewhere along the line. :) So you probably haven't seen the last of Howie and Arthur!(less)

Hello all! After what was supposed to be a month-long sale that somehow turned into a year-and-a-half long sale (oops), I am going to be raising the price of Know Not Why a dollar to $2.99. Life stuff is happening -- which, ain't that always the way? Oh life! -- and that little bit of extra income will be extremely helpful right now, especially due to way the royalties policy functions on Amazo... Read more of this blog post »

“Um,” Arthur says. He’s looking at me dead-on, like he’s forcing himself to do it. God, I wish he would knock it off. I also wish he’d lose his eyelashes in a freak eyelash fire incident. And his lips, too, because all of a sudden I’m looking at them, what is that. “Yes. I thought we should discuss—”

“You mouth-mauling me?” I ask loudly, indignantly, like a tough sonuvabitch who doesn’t want to be mouth-mauled. I make myself meet his eyes. They’re green; I never paid attention before. This really light, interesting, intelligent green—

FUCK, this guy needs to STOP HAVING A FACE.”
Hannah Johnson, Know Not Why

“You know, I don’t think it’s worth it to deny yourself happiness just so you can stay faithful to the person you think you’ve become.”
Hannah Johnson, Know Not Why

“He gives me a slight smile. I simultaneously want to, like, build shrines to it and punch it off his face. It’s complicated.”
Hannah Johnson, Know Not Why

YA LGBT Books: September 2013 BotM - WINNER - Two Boys Kissing 28 67 Aug 31, 2013 08:51PM  
“No sight so sad as that of a naughty child," he began, "especially a naughty little girl. Do you know where the wicked go after death?"

"They go to hell," was my ready and orthodox answer.

"And what is hell? Can you tell me that?"

"A pit full of fire."

"And should you like to fall into that pit, and to be burning there for ever?"

"No, sir."

"What must you do to avoid it?"

I deliberated a moment: my answer, when it did come was objectionable: "I must keep in good health and not die.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“I felt that thread that had come between us, tugging, tugging at my heart - so hard, it hurt me. A hundred times I almost rose, almost went in to her; a hundred times I thought, Go to her! Why are you waiting? Go back to her side! But every time, I thought of what would happen if I did. I knew that I couldn't lie beside her, without wanting to touch her. I couldn't have felt her breath upon my mouth, without wanting to kiss her. And I couldn't have kissed her, without wanting to save her.”
Sarah Waters, Fingersmith

“Felicity ignores us. She walks out to them, an apparition in white and blue velvet, her head held high as they stare in awe at her, the goddess. I don't know yet what power feels like. But this is surely what it looks like, and I think I'm beginning to understand why those ancient women had to hide in caves. Why our parents and suitors want us to behave properly and predictably. It's not that they want to protect us; it's that they fear us.”
Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty

“Warning: If you are insufferable, do not walk here. We shall eat you down to the marrow.”
Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty

“May I suggest that you all read? And often. Believe me, it's nice to have something to talk about other than the weather and the Queen's health. Your mind is not a cage. It's a garden. And it requires cultivating.”
Libba Bray, A Great and Terrible Beauty
