MAHLENA-RAE JOHNSON grew up on the mean beaches of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. During her senior year of high school, she was named Most Likely to Kidnap a Backstreet Boy.
After graduating from the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University, Mahlena decided to stay in Los Angeles to crawl up the ranks of the entertainment industry. In 2007, Mahlena founded Mr. J Media and published her first novel, Steve the Penguin. She then elected to continue her overeducation by attending the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, and graduated in 2010.
Mahlena published her second novel, Bianca Reagan: Where the Action Is, in 2013. When the author isn’t gorging herself on reruns of Murder, She Wrote and The Golden Girls, dabbling in stand-up comedy, or wondering what she should do with, she is working on The Book of Noa, a series of intergalactic sci-fi novels.
