About the Author

Dennis Milton Johnson was born in San Francisco, California and grew up in the Central San Joaquin Valley. He earned a degree in Art from Fresno State College before heading to the Navy in 1967 where his duties as a "SPOOK" placed him in Southeast Asia. Returning to school in 1969, he received a degree in English from Fresno State where he was nurtured in that acclaimed department which included Philip Levine, Peter Everwine, Gene Bluestein, Charles Hanzlicek and others. He continued his studies at UC Berkeley and later at the University of Alberta.

His time working as a carpenter, machinist and electrician before venturing into commercial banking as a career gave him a wealth of life experiences. Throughout this time, he never stopped writing poetry, short stories, and music as well as dabbling at his interest in art.

He is the author of the novels Return To Shelter Hook and The Shadows of November. He has also published Torn Pages, a collection of writings that look back on his experiences during and after his service in the Vietnam War, and several books of poetry.

Other works include the play, "What's That 'S' On Your Pajamas?", the unpublished novel, STEEL (The Ring in the Water) written in 1972, and a cookbook, California Falloon's, based upon the fictional restaurant Falloon's.

Now retired from a nearly forty year career in Banking and Finance, he spends his time writing and generally observing life from as many previously unobserved viewpoints as possible. He also enjoys sailing, playing music, painting, collecting classic sports cars, and has been an avid Porsche enthusiast since high school.
