Member Since
September 2013

Johanna Parkhurst grew up on a small dairy farm in northern Vermont before relocating to the rocky mountains of Colorado. Johanna taught middle and elementary school for fourteen years, and only once during that entire time did she ever have to rescue a sweatshirt from a ceiling fan. She strives to share stories of kids and young adults who are as determined, passionate, and complex as the ones she has shared classrooms with.

Johanna holds degrees from Albertus Magnus College and Teachers College, Columbia University. She loves traveling, the Food Network, skiing, hiking, and yelling at the TV during football and hockey season.

THANKS A LOT, JOHN LECLAIR is officially out and in the world! Huge, huge thanks to everyone who supported me and this book during its writing and publication. They say it takes a village to raise a novel*, and I've got one heck of a village.

*actually not sure if anyone has said that ever

Thanks a Lot, John LeClair

"A wonderful book, I enjoyed Johanna's previous book "Here's to you, Zeb Pike" for its low-key depiction of major life events and emotions in her main character. No over the top drama, but a realistic, heartfelt story about being yanked across the..." Read more of this review »
