PJ and Elisabeth are a mother and daughter writing team. The discovery of Lizzie’s letters led to this trilogy, The Courtship of Lizzie Andrews. Elisabeth earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Minnesota and married
A. Albert Johnson in 1951. They were blessed with four daughters by 1959. An unfortunate accident took the life of Al in 1964. Elisabeth moved the girls to California, after earning a teaching credential at Wayne State University in Detroit and commenced a thirteen year career teaching art. For over 25 years she then pursued her business of creating stuffed animals and ceramic “Pot Pets”. Research for this trilogy has occupied much of her time in the past decade. An avid geocacher, genealogist and archer, she has earned over sixty gold medals in Senior Games. Named “Queen Elisabeth” for archery following the 2010 Huntsman World Senior Games, she now resides with her dog Koko in Washington, Utah.
