Timothy Johnson is a writer and editor living outside Washington, D.C. His published writing includes the novels The Pillars of Dawn and Carrier as well as short fiction from Gamut, Haven Speculative, Crystal Lake Publishing, Inked in Gray Press, and others. He is a graduate of the MFA in creative writing program at George Mason University and a member of the Horror Writers Association.

Timothy often writes speculative fiction, usually science fiction and horror. Nothing frightens him more than the future, so he writes about it and hopes he’s wrong.

When he isn’t writing or reading, he’s probably indulging in the illusion he’ll ever be caught up with all the good TV and films, trying to outrun his sedentary lifestyle and love of comfort foods, playing an immersive video game, strumming a guitar, or traveling someplace nature or humans made wonderful.

You can occasionally find him posting keen observations of human behavior, revelations that are obvious to everyone else, dad jokes despite not being a father, and truly awful puns on Threads, Bluesky, Instagram, and Facebook. He sends out monthly emails through Substack. He’s on Goodreads, too.

Wherever you find him, he loves to connect with other people who are passionate about storytelling, because he believes community and the sharing of stories is what makes it all worthwhile.
