Episode 6: It’s the End of the World with Guest Sarah Johnson

KTT Ep 6 (Sarah Johnson).jpg

Join host Rebekah Dodson, co-host Jay Michael Writght II, and guest Sarah Johnson to discuss her new release on April 10th: Infractus! What would you do if the world was ending and you were only *slightly* haunted? Sarah’s gripping novel answers this very question. Fans of zombie, horror, and apocalypse movies and literature won’t want to miss this.

Sarah L. Johnson lives in Calgary with her noisy family and two slightly bewildered cats. She wrangles literary events at an indie bookstore for money, runs ultra marathons for fun, has a filthy mouth, and does daily battle with curly hair. Her writing skates across multiple genres: literary, sci-fi, fantasy, noir, horror, and once a romantic comedy that was so very terrible and shall be blasted from the obelisks of recorded history. Her short stories have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies including Room Magazine, Plenitude Magazine, the Bram Stoker nominated Dark Visions 1: A Collection of Modern Horror (Grey Matter Press), and Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Volume 2 (Comet Press). Her short story collection Suicide Stitch (EMP Publishing) came out in 2016, and her first novel, Infractus, will be released on April 10th, 2018 through Coffin Hop Press.
