Michael Johnson's "Life with an Angel" is his first novel. His writing started as an inspiration for his grandchildren, but he admits that while he was writing about the Angel, Mary Margaret, it helped to revitalize his own faith as well. He hopes that readers will learn about God in a simple to understand, easy to read storytelling approach. He feels that this could be a 'Baby-Boomer' genre and his desire is that people who read it will enjoy it while it strengthens their faith. Johnson was raised in Indiana and served 31 years as a police officer with a small city within central Indiana; he retired as the Chief of Police. Prior to that, he was in the Marines and fought as a combat veteran in the Vietnam War. Currently, he is the Security Director for a major hospital in central Indiana. Others that have been an inspiration to him are his parents - Robert and Hazel Johnson - his wife and family - and Father Vincent Capodanno, who he met while serving in Vietnam. He and his wife, Vicki, live in Shelbyville, Indiana. They have four grown children and nine grandchildren to whom this book is dedicated.
