Today, I am hosting JR Johansson for the YA Scavenger Hunt!

J.R. JOHANSSON is the author of the Night Walkers Series (INSOMNIA, PARANOIA and MANIA) as well as standalone novels, CUT ME FREE and THE ROW. Her books have been published in over a dozen languages and more than twenty countries worldwide. She has a B.S. degree in public relations and a background in marketing. She credits her abnormal psychology minor with inspiring many of her characters. She lives in a valley by the mountains where the sun shines 300+ days per year with two sons, a husband, three cats, and a hot tub named Valentino.

Find out more about JR Johansson by checking out her website!  You can also catch up with her on Goodreads | Twitter

JR Johansson’s featured book is INSOMNIA

Amazon | Goodreads

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp spends each night trapped in the dream of the last person he’s made eye contact with. Every night he is crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets–and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion from his brain never truly sleeping is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing the real life nightmares of psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. There is no denying how badly Parker needs it. When he starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day, everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?

JR Johansson’s got an extra special something to share with us, an exclusive cover reveal for PARANOIA, the sequel to INSOMNIA. PARANOIA comes out in Summer 2020. Read about it here at Goodreads!
