Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen, but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend.

I get a lot of questions about Daniel and whether or not I'll ever write another book about him. The answer is maybe. I love him too and I do know a few things that happen to him after If I Fix You, but ultimately it would come down to my publisher. If they ask for another book with him then I would write one. So feel free to let Harlequin Teen know you want more Daniel :)

I talk a little about this on my blog: http://abigailjohnsonbooks.com/sellin... But the short answer is that I've been a voracious reader my whole life, and I've always written little things as well, but it wasn't until I took a writing class in college that the idea of becoming a published author took root. It is a big step, and for me at least, a challenging one, but I'm persistent :) I worked hard writing IF I FIX YOU (which was my first book), and just as hard finding a phenomenal literary agent who brought me to my fantastic editor at Harlequin Teen, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.(less)

Cover Reveal for EVERY TIME YOU GO AWAY

Cover Reveal for EVERY TIME YOU GO AWAY
Abigail Johnson

Are you ready for it…?

EVERY TIME YOU GO AWAY is a special book for me for so many reasons, not the least because this is the first book that I’ve written featuring a protagonist who, like me, is a wheelchair user. It was uniquely challenging to write but also uniquely satisfying too. There’s always a lot of myself in my characters—goo

Quotes by Abigail Johnson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Falling was such an elastic word. It was basically horrible. People got hurt and died, falling. There was force and pain and fear, if the height was great enough. Even sometimes when it wasn’t. The terror of not finding something solid underfoot was just as real for half a second as it was for twenty. Yet fall was the word most often coupled with love, falling in and falling out of. How was that even possible? They couldn’t be the same. One fall ushered in delirious, stupid happiness; the other fall expelled those euphoric emotions with blood and tears and scars. Bliss and agony. Fall and fall. It wasn’t the same. There should be a better word.”
Abigail Johnson, If I Fix You

“And as I watched him leave, even the shreds of my heart shriveled into dust and blew away.”
Abigail Johnson, If I Fix You

“Look, if you only see the world as a list of things you'll never get to do, then you'll never enjoy any of the things you get to do. You'll always be thinking of something else, wanting more, when maybe what you have, what you've seen or read or heard or whatever, is pretty great. You'll never appreciate anything.”
Abigail Johnson
