Meet the contributors: MP Johnson
MP Johnson is a lady first and trans second. No, actually, she is a lady first and a writer second, and trans… Wait, no, she’s a lady first, a daughter and sister and aunt second. Writer is definitely in the top five, and trans is probably somewhere a little lower than that, just above cereal connoisseur. It’s part of her, but probably doesn’t define her as much as other people want to use it as her defining trait. Oh, and about the writer thing: She’s the Wonderland Book Award-winning author of Dungeons & Drag Queens, Berzerkoids, Nails and many other books. Her short fiction has appeared in The Dark, Dark Discoveries, Year’s Best Hardcore Horror and many other publications. She has created a variety of zines, including fifteen issues of Freak Tension. She is the founder of Weirdpunk books, a press devoted to merging punk rock and genre fiction. Learn more at www.freaktension.com.
