  • Johnson, Lois Walfrid

    Best-selling author Lois Walfrid Johnson had written hundreds of articles and thirteen books targeted to four age levels when a young man told her, “My wife and I are new Christians.  We really want to have a Christian home.  But both of us grew up in such dysfunctional families that we don’t have the faintest clue what to do.”

    As Lois prayed about his concern, she decided to change direction. Out of her early love for reading, she began writing compelling historical fiction for children and teens.  Each chapter in these family-friendly novels ends with a cliffhanger.  Now Lois’ 38 books include The Disappearing Stranger and other Adventures of the Northwoods mysteries.  In the Freedom Seekers series the story family lives on an 1857 steamboat.  Yes, Underground Railroad!  In the much-loved Viking Quest series characters travel from Ireland to Norway, Iceland, and Greenland, then join Leif Erikson in sailing to the New World.  Girl Talk, a 52-week story and journaling devotional, helps girls make godly choices.

    A trusted friend of families and former instructor for Writer’s Digest School, Lois teaches writing and inspirational topics in churches, schools, universities, homeschool, and writer’s conferences.  Her work has received numerous honors, including C. S. Lewis awards, five Silver Angels from Excellence in Media, the Wisconsin State Historical Society Award for Distinguished Service to History, and a Moonbeam Children’s Book Award in Multicultural Fiction.  All four books in her Let’s-Talk- About-It Stories for Kids series received the Gold Medallion.

    Lois’ work has been published in English-speaking countries throughout the world and translated into twelve languages.  Her husband, Roy, a long-time teacher in Minneapolis schools, is her biggest idea person and daily encourager.

    Readers from more than 40 countries have written to say, “I love your books.  I can’t put them down.”  Even better, “God used your books to change my life.”
