Ms. Lee has always been concerned about the eating habits of young children and hopes her book What Colors Did You Eat Today? will make a positive impact.
Johnson believes she was born to write even though she was diagnosed with dyslexia at an early age. This did not stop her from fulfilling her passion of writing. It only added fuel to the fire of her desire to be successful in the literary world.
In 2006, after the loss of a twenty plus year career in the medical field, Johnson wrote her first masterpiece; a mind grabbing, heart-wrenching fictional story that takes you back in the day where What’s Past is Not Forgotten. From 2008 to 2011 Gayle had 4 books published.
