Todd Johnson's bestselling first novel THE SWEET BY AND BY received the 2010 Connecticut Book Award. The novel was also named a PEOPLE "Great Reads For Your Book Club" Pick, a REAL SIMPLE "Entertainment Selection," and a 2010 Books-A-Million Book Club selection.

Johnson has been a teacher and session singer in New York City and received a Tony Award nomination as a producer of THE COLOR PURPLE on Broadway. He is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and Yale.

Born and raised in North Carolina, he now lives in Litchfield County, Connecticut with two wildly energetic Brittanys, Josephine and Owen.

Where is that pounding coming from?

We are putting a new roof on our old, old, old house. This is no longer a choice. Hammering is going to happen all too soon. There will be no reading except at night. There will be no writing except at night. There will be no thinking except at night. That leaves eating and worrying about the work I'm not doing. My novel and I are looking for asylum.
