Trudi (White) Johnson, Ph.D., grew up in St. John’s, though her family roots are in Greenspond, Bonavista Bay. She graduated from Memorial University and taught for ten years in the K-12 school system in White Bay and Labrador City. In the 1990s, she completed a doctoral degree in Newfoundland history, specializing in matrimonial law and inheritance practices. Currently, she is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at Memorial, where she enjoys teaching education and communications and researches effective teaching, student engagement, and teacher efficacy.
Her first novel, From a Good Home, was published in 2016. It begins the story about a fictional St. John’s family, the Sinclairs. It received positive reviews and was promoted throughout Atlantic Canada. All Good Intentions, the second in the series, continues the story of the lives of the Sinclair family and friends. She is currently working on the third book in the series, Share and Share Alike. Through her writing, she hopes her readers will see that we all live our lives in “webs spun long before we were born.”
In addition to writing fiction, Trudi likes to garden, read murder mysteries, and watch sports. She lives in St. John’s with her husband, Albert.
