Marie K Johnston (aka Kristen M McCurry) is a novelist, poet, visual artist and website creator. She is a 42 year old married mother of one living in a little arty town just northwest of Houston, TX.
She was educated at The University of Texas at Austin and Cornell University, and she was accepted into Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
Marie K Johnston has written/edited for a wide variety of publications and agencies (including Walmart.com and Rice University's Web & Print Division), and she taught English and Liberal Arts subjects for 10 years before she married.
She is the author of 2 novels and 3 books of poetry, which can also be previewed and purchased at http://Amazon.com/author/mariekjohnston.
She writes local color "faction," taking a journalistic approach to magic realism to illustrate everyday life in Texas where resilient female protagonists are both soft and strong. A preview of her visual art can be found at https://www.MarieKJohnston.com ("The Fiction & Folk Art of Marie K Johnston").
Johnston is currently working on two projects:
1) the publication of her journal, which explores the themes of love, loss, marriage, motherhood, dealing with mental illness, and coming into one's own, &
2) a third novel dealing primarily with her daily, lifelong battle with Bipolar I with Psychotic Features.
Both of these intense projects are due for publication and release in December 2020.
