Hump Day Interview - Sloan Johnson

It's Wednesday, it's Hump Day and it's Sloan Johnson's turn in the Hot Seat! 

What are you reading right now and what is next on your to-be-read list?

Right now, I'm getting ready to start Reawaken by Christina Lee. Who knows what'll be next. There are way too many books coming out this month that I want to read!

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?

It didn't happen directly to me, but I feel like this counts... my husband recently started a new job where he has to get dressed at 3am. Not wanting to wake me, he used to get dressed in the dark. That came to a screeching halt when he unknowingly went to work with a pair of my unmentionables dangling from the velcro on his pocket. Now, all of his coworkers (some of whom have become good friends) know what type of underwear I wear. The best part, he walked around for three hours before someone noticed and mentioned it to him, because the office staff comes in later than him.

We all have junk. List the items in your fridge you never use.

Four containers of cabbage soup, a bag of baby spinach, and a container of cashew milk

How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?

I don't have anything finished and unpublished because I get antsy to release as soon as I'm happy with a story. As for unfinished stories, I have at least six with significant word counts and who knows how many more that I've started but never kept writing.

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?

I like to outline so I know what's going on. Unfortunately, the more I plan, the louder my characters laugh at me. It's become a game to see how long it'll take the characters to flip the bird at my outline and do whatever they want. Sadly, they usually know better than me what's supposed to happen.

Inseparable - OUT December 1

Trevor and Gabe never knew life without the other. As only children, they grew up as close as brothers, but their love grew to something more. Something they couldn't talk about because their parents wouldn't understand.

Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn't mean he isn't harboring secrets.

Trevor is his parents’ miracle child and he doesn’t want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he's in love with Gabe, could ruin everything.

Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

About Sloan

Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?


  1. Mayo (keep it around but never use it) & a 4 year old bottle of vodka (supposed to make a flakier pie crust if you substitute for water but right after I got it my oven stopped working) :-)

  2. Ketchup/Catsup, neither hubby nor I use it. I have one recipe that calls for it but I only make it about once a year so I usually end up throwing out the rest of the bottle after it goes out of date.
