Greg Johnson is a graduate of Michigan State University and works in sales. He was inspired to write by watching his young stepson make the transition from a boy to a young adult. As his stepson asked questions, experienced new emotions, and began to develop stronger relationships with friends, Greg thought a story would be a good supplement to the lessons he and his wife were already teaching. The story became Beyond the Red Mountains. Greg lives in Chicago with his wife Jean, stepson Brice and their cat Leo.

There were many times when I wondered if what I was writing was any good or not. In fact, a year in to Beyond the Red Mountains I scrapped almost the entire story and started over. Persistence is key.(less)
