Lana Wood Johnson is a young adult author from Minnesota with a background in wireless technology consulting.

Lana Wood Johnson lives in Minnesota with her husband and English Bulldog. When not writing, she is the tech nerd for a youth shelter.

Lana Wood Johnson splits her time between writing and working at a local youth shelter. TECHNICALLY, YOU STARTED IT is her debut YA Contemporary novel forthcoming from Scholastic.

Lana Wood Johnson was born and raised in Iowa in the time before the internet but has spent the rest of her life making up for that. After years working in wireless communication for companies of all sizes, she now works doing the same for a local youth shelter. Lana lives in Minnesota with her husband and their English bulldog. TECHNICALLY, YOU STARTED IT is her debut novel.
