Author Interview: Kimberly Rose Johnson

Hi all, Angela here, and I am so excited to introduce you to author Kimberly Rose Johnson! Here is a little about her:

Kimberly Rose Johnson married her college sweetheart and lives in the Pacific Northwest. From a young child Kimberly has been an avid reader. That love of reading fostered a creative mind and led to her passion for writing.

She especially loves romance and writes contemporary romance that warms the heart and feeds the soul.

Kimberly holds a degree in Behavioral Science from Northwest University in Kirkland, Washington. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.

You can sign up for Kimberly's newsletter via her website at:

Welcome! We're so glad you could visit us today.  

Thank you! I’m really happy to be here.

What made you decide to become a writer?  

I have always loved reading and often thought to myself I could do that. I’m the annoying person who can tell you what a character will say before he does it because that’s the way I would have written it.
When I hit my thirties, I guess I was bored, because I randomly began to write a story that was in my head. From then on I’ve been writing.

Where did the inspiration for your latest book come from? 

The first book in the series inspired an Encore for Estelle. When I wrote Estelle into A Love Song for Kayla I sensed this woman needed her own book.

How does your faith and spirituality work in with your writing? 

My faith is at the core of who I am and therefore it comes out in my writing. I don’t set out to write spiritual elements into my story, but they form organically.
I’m what they call a seat of your pants writer, which means I don’t spend much time plotting. I have a concept in my mind and how I want the story to end. I fill in the blanks as I write and that’s when the spiritual element is developed.

What do you want readers to come away with after reading your books? 

I have discovered that each reader latches on to something they can relate to. It will be one thing for one person and another thing for someone else. That being said, I hope they come away with a satisfying experience that left them wanting more.

What are you working on next? 

I am currently writing A Waltz for Kelly, which is the third book in my Melodies of Love series.

When you are stressed, maybe a deadline’s approaching too fast, what is your favorite snack food? Or do you have another way to cope? 

Sadly I turn to chocolate. I wish I’d crave healthy food like carrots. My waistline would be much smaller.

I'm afraid I'm there with you with the chocolate! Thank so much for visiting with us today!

The theater ties them together but a painful past could pull them apart.

At a crossroads, former movie star Estelle Rogers, returns to the place that set her life on a new course. Although she expects a rough reception she is pleasantly surprised and quickly settles into her new position at the local children's theater. But her road back to acting isn't as smooth as she would like.

Tragedy brought Blake Price to Oak Knoll, Oregon, but it's love that keeps him there. His late wife and daughter loved acting, and he owes it to them to honor their memory with the children’s theater, but his new assistant is making changes he isn’t ready for both at the theater and in his heart. Can he forgive himself and move forward, or will he forever be tied to the biggest mistake of his life? 


  1. Welcome Kimberly to STT. Nice meeting you through this blog post. Your books sound like great reads--I appreciate authors who has a spiritual message interwoven into their stories.

    1. Hi Marilyn R. Thanks. For me it's difficult to leave out the spiritual aspect because it's so much a part of who I am. It just comes out naturally in my writing. Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for being our guest, Kimberly!

  3. Thanks Kimberly and Angela for a very nice interview.

  4. Thanks for having me, Angela. :) Sorry, I'm delayed in getting here this morning. I'm on pacific time and we did our big monthly grocery shopping this morning.

    1. No problem. I know how Saturday mornings go. :)

  5. Oh, I forgot to mention that An Encore for Estelle as well as the A Love Song for Kayla are both only 99¢ this weekend.
