G. C. “Gabby” Johnson

Who is G.C. Johnson?

Although The Stranger Within is her first novel, Gabby Johnson has been a writer since 2006, coming a long way from scribbling away at notebooks in class. She now writes at her laptop and slowly yet surely works on her novels. Not only is she a book nerd and a Ravenclaw, she’s also a Ferocious Fighter, battling the chronic pain disorder RSD/CRPS every day for the last four years. She can be seen browsing the aisles of Barnes and Noble or with a McDonald’s drink in her hand.

Why writing?

She’s been writing since she was nine, but it wasn’t until she was twelve that it really became something more to her. Gabby would write Percy Jackson fanfic for school projects and her teachers noticed she was a good storyteller. That’s when it all changed.

Few favorites…

Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows, Shadow and Bone Trilogy) Sherrilyn Kenyon (Chronicles of Nick) John Flanagan (Ranger’s Apprentice) Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)

Synopses of The Stranger Within:- Olivia Jenkins and Sam Wayne used to be the closest of friends until their friendship ended abruptly the summer before high school. Three years later, Sam is now the leader of a Lower Manhattan street gang, and despite it all, Olivia’s in love with him. When the two are forced to be Geometry partners, they’ll have to work past their childhood memories and present rivalry for a pleasant senior year… but old feelings and a secret threaten to ruin it.
