DEADGIRL by B.C. Johnson
"A unique, mind-blowing premise and setting. Characters with authentic voice. A lovestruck but spunky heroine. Engaging, imaginative prose. This world is unique, wonderfully - though scarily - depicted, and visually mind-blowing. Lucy is a young, stubborn, brave girl, hell-bent on staying alive." Roberta R., Offbeat YA


The Debut Novel from author B.C. Johnson

Dead is such a strong word . . .
Lucy Day, 15 years old, is murdered on her very first date. Not one to take that kind of thing lying down, she awakens a day later with a seemingly human body and more than a little confusion. Lucy tries to return to her normal life, but the afterlife keeps getting in the way.
Zack, her crush-maybe-boyfriend, isn't exactly excited that she ditched him on their first date. Oh, and Abraham, Lucy’s personal Grim Reaper, begins hunting her, dead-set on righting the error that dropped her back into the spongy flesh of a living girl. Lucy must put her mangled life back together, escape re-death, and learn to control her burgeoning powers while staying one step ahead of Abraham.
But when she learns the devastating price of coming back from the dead, Lucy is forced to make the hardest decision of her re-life — can she really sacrifice her loved ones to stay out of the grave?

THE LANCER by B.C. Johnson
"Well laid out plot with gifted descriptives. This is a read you'll want to curl up with and not stop until you've turned the last page." - Randall LeBlanc, Amazon.com

The Lancer, a Kindle Single short story

"Mel flashed me those darkly amused eyes that made me want to whip off my shirt and fan her with palm fronds." 

Luke Harris and Mel Vega, professional detectives, high school students, and power-couple are hired by nervous beauty Vanessa Palmer. 

Vanessa, sure of her boyfriend Jake's infidelity, just wants proof. Pictures, video, anything showing the Hinckley Prep star water-polo player breaking her heart. Luke and Mel's routine cheating investigation goes sideways as Vanessa's older sister appears, a world-wise girl with an agenda and a penchant for dark secrets. 

As they dig deeper, Luke and Mel begin to wonder if the truth is better 
than lie, and whether questions always deserve answers . .
