Some writers are drawn to heroes, others glory in bringing villains to life. Lloyd Johnson has always felt most comfortable in the dark, murky landscape that exists in-between. It started early when his mother received a call from an alarmed schoolteacher. Lloyd’s latest essay was too conflicted for a ten-year-old mind; he was melancholic, fatalistic, a drug-addict in the making! “Or he’s just a damn good writer,” his mother had snapped, before telling Lloyd he had a gift to pursue, and a duty to explore the expanses of his imagination. Wherever it might lead him.
After early interests in fashion design and acting, Lloyd came home to writing. He tends to break important rules like writing across genres and breathing life into characters and subjects most authors avoid. To date he’s published three novels, including a women’s contemporary fiction titled The Dog Catcher, the erotic novel Tricks for a Trade, and most recently The Best Possible Angle, a mystery thriller.
Johnson draws much of his inspiration from his extensive travels overseas. When he isn’t sitting in cafes, spying on unsuspecting characters-in-the-making, he’s working on his next four novels.
