Conversation with Andrea J. Johnson | Poetic Justice

Online

Join us for a live, interactive online conversation with Andrea J. Johnson, author of Poetic Justice, a debut thriller and first in the Victoria Justice series. Andrea will be in conversation with fellow mystery author VM Burns.

Twenty-five year old Victoria Justice has never really gotten over a near drowning at the hands of a high school bully, but has attempted to build her confidence and career as a court stenographer under the mentorship of The Honorable Frederica Scott Wannamaker, the county's first African-American Superior Court judge. But when her old nemesis appears on the court docket, Victoria's carefully crafted world implodes―evidence goes missing, a potential mistrial abounds, and the judge winds up drowned in the courthouse bathroom. Victoria realizes her transcript of the proceedings unlocks everyone's secrets...including the murderer's. Plagued with guilt for failing to protect her mentor, Victoria teams up with Ashton North, the handsome state trooper accused of mishandling trial evidence, and starts to untangle the conspiracy surrounding the case. Can she suppress her fears long enough to crack the code, find her voice, and avoid the crosshairs of the killer?

Andrea J.Johnson is a freelance entertainment writer for the women’s lifestyle website Popsugar. Her love for insider gossip has led her to take real-life headlines and turn them into mind-bending mysteries. Her novel, Poetic Justice, finds inspiration in Delaware’s 2014 drug lab scandal and uses Andrea’s background as a court reporter to explore what would happen if the trial’s stenographer took the law into her own hands. In addition to being a writer, Andrea is a certified shorthand reporter for the State of California and a member of the National Court Reporters Association. She currently resides on the Delmarva Peninsula near the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays, which is the backdrop for her new series. V. M.
