Book Agent Tawny Johnson held a bachelor’s degree in Bible and Theology with a minor in English Literature from Multnomah University and a master’s degree in Theological Studies from Multnomah Biblical Seminary. She taught a course to graduate students at Portland State University on the intricacies of the publishing industry.

So she knows, first-hand, how God can use the words printed in a book to touch the heart of a searching soul.

Her years of experience in bookstore retailing gave her the unique ability to recognize relevance and marketability.

She was also instrumental in developing the company’s Foreign Rights division by promoting authors to foreign publishers at the International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany.
