About the Founder & CEO

– Arlana Johnson

I was destined to be a lover of words. Growing up, my parents placed a high value on reading. At home, our shelves were stocked with books of all genres and styles. My dad is an author who founded a writer’s group and built a career in editing and publishing. My mom is a mystery buff who worked for decades as an educator. I earned a degree in print journalism and spent nearly 20 years as a communications strategist for nonprofits and a Fortune 100 corporation. Every day of my career I created—through writing, editing and design. After years of helping organizations expertly craft and deliver their messages, I now get joy from doing the same for writers who have stories to tell and experiences to share. I genuinely love what I do!

In addition to serving as a writer and communicator, I am mom to my amazing tween daughter, Leila. I also hold a master’s degree in educational ministries, which equips me well in working with writers whose goal is to educate and inspire others along their faith journey. I am a deep thinker who loves to laugh, learn, and enhance my creativity. I thrive in green spaces and my favorite place is the beach. It’s the best space for me to read, write, and recharge.
