Alex Johnston was born in 1980. After a partly misspent youth working in the hospitality industry, taking several gap years and listening to 1990s skater punk he eventually went to university, and he’s now a desk jockey in the world of admin.
By night however, Alex has always been a writer, from travel diaries to short stories. His first novel, Freedom Like a Shopping Cart, is a poignant coming-of-age tale of five young men searching for answers on the back-roads of southwest Britain. The book is available for download from Amazon now.
Alex is now working on his second book, a novella about unrequited love and enduring obsession, due for publication later in 2014.
