About A.G.S. Johnson
A.G.S. Johnson always intended to be a writer. But
raised in a Midwestern family of five girls and no boys, she embarked on a
career in the corporate world that would allow her to explore why men were treated
differently than women. Armed with a business degree, for over 20 years she was
a banker, most often working with international currencies.
Still, writing remained a dream, so she
returned to school, earned a masters degree in fiction writing from the
University of Southern California and proceeded to pursue her lifelong
ambition. Her debut novel The Sausage Maker’s Daughters, 12 years in the
making, released Feb. 7, 2012.
In addition to her passion for reading,
traveling and all things French, Johnson serves on the Board of the Council of
the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, and is a founding board member of The
World is Just a Book Away. Proceeds from The Sausage Maker’s Daughters benefit this relatively young charity that builds libraries in developing
Since the late 70’s Johnson has made her home
first in Northern California, now in Los Angeles, where the author lives with
her husband of 20 years and their menagerie of cats and dogs. She is currently
working on her second novel, a medical murder mystery based on a true story of
discovery and deceit.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this novel will be donated to The World is Just a Book Away, a charity that builds libraries for children in developing countries, changing their lives forever through access to books. JustABookAway.org
