Nancy Johnson

Chicago, IL
I'm a writer from the South Side of Chicago with a passion for telling untold stories. Currently, agents are reviewing the full manuscript for THE KINDEST LIE, my debut novel that explores motherhood and the meaning of family at the intersection of race and class. O, The Oprah Magazine published my personal essay on how I found my figurative voice again after a childhood bullying experience. In 2018, I was named runner-up for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship Award. Tin House and Kimbilio Fiction have supported my work to improve my craft. For more than a decade, I worked as an Emmy-nominated, award-winning television journalist.
