A Bend author is named to a "Top 100 Writers of 2012" list in Conversations Magazine, after his first book is published.

 

Bryan Johnson, author of "Yield" a novel about how survivors in an apocalyptic world survives.

 

Johnson says it took a long time to write this novel, which is the first in a series of three books.  "It's really just an interesting look at our current way of life. I’ve integrated some contemporary headlines and news into it to give it a bit more of a bit more of a sense of realism. But it's really a descent from that point into a dark and apocalyptic world. After our country is attacked, it's really a story of people trying to make sense of what's happened. And try to put their lives back together in a very savage and anarchic world."

 

He says he's named his trilogy "The Armageddia Series" and is currently working on books two and three.

 

Johnson currently works as the Director of Creative Services at KOHD here in Bend.
