Johanna Harness is a writer of novels and stories about middle grade and young adult characters. She is a lifelong resident of Idaho and all her writing is influenced by her placement in the world.
She writes early every morning, shifts to homeschooling priorities during the day, and then moves back to writing in the late afternoon. In addition to writing and teaching, Johanna enjoys photography, knitting, raising sheep, and exploring areas off the beaten path. She always enjoys a good laugh.
In addition to writing regular posts for Gem State Writers, Johanna keeps an author blog (http://www.johannaharness.com), a website devoted to writing colleagues (http://www.amwriting.org), and a website featuring stories from the lives of some of her young adult characters (http://www.clairemorgane.com).
Johanna is represented by The Carolyn Swayze Agency and her first novel, Claire Morgane Almost Saves The World, is currently out on sub to publishers.
