Author Spotlight: Johnny Worthen

You've all met Johnny Worthen, I'm sure. Over six foot tall and draped in tie-dye, he's kind of hard to miss, but his outward appearance is only a slight glimpse into this colorful character I am pleased to call friend. And speaking of colorful, I've heard that Johnny's latest novel is precisely that. Check it out!

Galen is political. Galen is fed up. Galen is a blackmailer.
Brand is a jerk who has money. He had an affair and Galen found out. Now Brand has new problems.
A criminal and self-styled Robin Hood, Galen must face down a ruthless enemy who does not share his ideological limitations.
In the footsteps of Edward Abbey’s THE MONKEY WRENCH GANG, THE BRAND DEMAND follows a group of political activists who strike at the system with cunning and guile while getting rich doing it.
Galen takes risks and money, but when his plans go awry, he quickly learns that politics are no substitute for wits.
Galen has to come to grips with his own boundaries of action and love while running for his life in Southern Utah. He has to stay under the radar, dodging skinheads and corporate moguls, Latter Day Saints romance writers and cheating husbands and—of course and always—the authorities.

Johnny Worthen is a nationally acclaimed, award winning author of books and stories.
A son of the Wasatch Mountains, he graduated with a BA in English and Master’s in American Studies from the University of Utah. With this basis in literary and cultural criticism plus a lifetime of scars, he writes upmarket, multi-genre fiction seeking truth in narrative.
When not presenting at conferences or attending conventions, Johnny is most likely hard at work at his keyboard somewhere in Sandy, Utah with his wife, two sons and cat.
“I write what I like to read; this guarantees me at least one fan.”
