Super Girls and Halos

What do Wonder Woman and St. Katharine Drexel have in common? How about St. Clare of Assisi and Rey, the ingenue from Star Wars The Force Awakens? All four women sought justice for the abused.

With the same zest for her faith and cheeky wit that readers found so compelling in My Badass Book of Saints and a love for the heroic journey that highlights her career, Johnson now focuses on heroines–improbable pairings of saints and characters from sci-fi, comics, and fantasy–who have influenced her life and deepened her understanding of the Church’s cardinal virtues: prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice.

My Badass Book of Saints

I’m so excited to introduce you to my first book, published by Ave Maria Press. It has a tough title, and a scrappy cover (don’t you love it?), but for every punch thrown — or almost thrown — on the pages within, you’ll also find a little vulnerability and tenderness, too.


from the publisher:
“In My Badass Book of Saints: Courageous Women Who Showed Me How to Live, Johnson shares her experience as a first-generation Cuban-American, educator of at-risk college students, and caregiver for a husband with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Through humorous, empowering, and touching portraits of twenty-four spiritual mentors who inspired her, Johnson shows how their bravery, integrity, selflessness, perseverance, and hope helped her and can help others have courage to reach for a closer connection to God.”
