Nell Johnson

Nell Johnson began her career as an actress at the age of sixteen. She spent many years working in theatre, film and television, performing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and many classic plays, and musicals, including her favourite, Gypsy. In the series Prisoner, she played Sarah Higgins for a year in Australia. She realised very early that the imaginary world was the place for her. The shock of her older sister, a prodigy and a concert pianist, cleaning the floors of their parents’ home; drove her to vacate and venture where the green grass grew. All was forgiven after her sister presented a sparkling raindrop on a rounded green leaf, as the Fairy Queen. A vivid memory on her third birthday that survived the passage of time. After writing many film scripts and producing, directing and writing a short film, she progressed to writing an older children’s book followed by the classic novel Goodbye William. The late Roy Dotrice encouraged her work as a writer.
