RM Johnson
This Chicago native served five years in the United States Army before receiving his BS in science from the University of Louisiana. He worked as an X-ray technologist and a radiation therapist while he earned his Masters in creative writing from Chicago State University. In 1996, Johnson wrote his first novel, The Harris Men, which was picked up by Simon & Schuster in 1999 and became a best seller. Since then, Johnson has written nine novels, including bestsellers, The Harris Family, Dating Games, and The Million Dollar Divorce. Why Men Fear Marriage, Johnson's first crack at nonfiction, is a detailed look into the mind of men, explaining why so many are so reluctant to say "I do!" Johnson is single (for now) and lives in Atlanta, Ga.
