Mark gives an interview
Meet Al Place!
The genius behind Chronicles of Mark Johnson
Meet Mark Johnson!
I was lucky enough to grab an interview with the famous photographer, ghost whisperer, mystery solver, Mark Johnson! Mr. Alan Place was kind enough to let him out of the book long enough to let me ask a few questions.
Hi Mark! My Name is Yezall, just make yourself comfortable and relax. I have a few questions for our readers to get to know you better.
While you were a glamor photographer, I heard you were quite the ladies man, is that true Mark?
HI there, Yezall. I did have an eye for the ladies, there is no use trying to deny the truth but I really think it was my reluctance to show my true self that drew them to me. I have been told that I had a dark, brooding sexuality. That is for you ladies to decide ( winks)
(Note from Yezall: Did he just wink at me?)
Why would you give up that lifestyle? The money must have been incredible!
Sure, the money was great, I had almost anything I could have or wish for but at the end of the day, is that what it was about? To some, the answer was yes but not for me. To find the reasons you will have to read the next book of Chronicles, I warn the readers it is dark and brooding, like me. The story "The private joke" will tell all you wish to know, sexy. Wish I could take you on a few adventures (winks)
(Note from Yezall: I better change the subject!)
What is your preference in what you shoot these days?
These days, I prefer to go out in the winds and rains, Phil, my agent, never could understand why. As I told him, you don't get the good shots sat on your backside in the storms, you need to be out there in the weather to feel alive-well I do.
Were you always able to speak to spirits? How did that come about?
Since our Uni days, Rachel Stockman and I have been able to communicate with the spirits regularly, our mentor P A Canella taught us how to concentrate our minds to achieve a new and more refined sense of conscience. There are plenty of stories between P A & myself, both being quiet and reclusive. He even had his own story collections out once.
Are you ever afraid?
Fears are something I live with and fight all the time(bows his head). Many see me a hero but I am just a man, if you read the set about North Moor, you will see my fears but my friends are worried I may cross over the dark side again, that is my fear too. When I do that I take on a new evil persona and lose myself.
Do you think your true calling is in spirit research and mystery solving?
Mystery solving has always been something of a pull for me, that is why I took up the journalism. I never wanted the celebrity scene, they are so shallow
What are you working on now?
At the moment Rachel, P A and myself are trying to break a witches spell on me, after that I think I deserve to take Rachel on a trip after all she has had to put up with. All these tales will be featured in futures stories. P A has a load of them, Yez. We hope to be able to help him with his researches as well, when we get back.
Sounds like you live a pretty exciting life! I see our time is growing to a close. Al tells me you are needed in the book, he has a scene to write... Thanks for taking time to talk with me!
