Tooting the Horn…Vickie Johnstone


My friend…Vickie Johnstone…joins us today…all the way from…London…where she is a writer and freelance layout sub editor…her first book…Kiwi in Cat City…was self-published in 2011…but…she’s been writing stories and poetry all of her life…

Vickie has self-published the following 14 books…Kaleidoscope (poetry)…Travelling Light (poetry)…Life’s Rhythms (haiku)…Kiwi in Cat City (magical cat series for middle-grade readers)…Kiwi and the Missing Magic…Kiwi and the Living Nightmare…Kiwi and the Serpent of the Isle…Kiwi in the Realm of Ra…Kiwi’s Christmas Tail…(the Kiwi Series has wonderful illustrations by Nikki McBroom)…Day of the Living Pizza (comedy detective series for middle grade readers)…Day of the Pesky Shadow…The Sea Inside (fantasy)…3 Heads and a Tail (comedy romance)…and…drumroll please…her latest release…I Dream of Zombies (horror)…

So…Vickie is one busy lady…writing and editing…and…I hear…she’s also a cat lover…and dances like an eejitBertha…says…Vickie can keep the cats…but she’d love to go out dancing…

Hmmm…think I’ll just go watch…it could be quite a show…

Anyway…Vickie’s latest title…I Dream of Zombies…is hot off the press…it’s a switch from her usual…poetry…middle grade…comedy romance…all the way to…horror…but my sources tell me…she’s done it quite well…

I love the title…makes me think of…I Dream of Genie…and…I love the tagline for the book…

It starts with a dream and then the nightmare takes over…

Bertha…says that sounds like a lot of things in my life…okay…enough from…Bertha…we’re turning her off for the rest of the post…

Anyway…here’s a bit more about the story…

It all begins on a summer’s day with the media reporting with some hilarity that people are dreaming of the dead coming to life, but those who have dreamt them are convinced they are a warning of things to come. Marla takes it all with a pinch of salt until she experiences the nightmares herself. Cue paranoia and disbelief until reality shows its new face.

Sounds like a great book for…zombie lovers…and…it was released for only 99 cents…so…you’ll want to grab it before…the price goes up…

Vickie…loves interacting with her readers…and…here’s where you can find her to do just that…

  1. Thanks Jane. This really made me chuckle. I loved I Dream of Genie when I was a young teen. And yep, I think it inspired my book title. I was also dreaming of zombies for days on end and so I decided to write about them :) I love zombie films – they’re the only monsters that scared me… besides spiddies :)
