Vaughn Johnson writes speculative fiction with some horror, fantasy, talking animals, and sci-fi thrown in. He has written a series of children’s picture books for the Little Tikes Company, and was featured in Scraping the Red Sky, an anthology of up-and-coming Denver-based authors. He got his start in the world of animation, where he continues to find inspiration for his odd stories.
By day, Vaughn works as a freelance copywriter for clients in the toy, furniture and aerospace industries. He also loves to go on safari to thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales where he finds strange and unusual items. Some of these items end up in his own wunderkammer, while many others appear in his eBay store.
Vaughn lives in Denver, Colorado with his equally eccentric wife, son and two fur babies; an orange cat who thinks he is a dog, and a dog who agrees, even if she thinks he’s a bit funny-looking for a dog. They are on a never-ending quest to find the perfect waterslide, taco, and roadside attraction. The search continues.
