About Our Staff
Billie Johnson, Publisher
Billie has a B.S., Business and spent 20+ years in corporate America before striking out on her own with a business and accounting consulting practice, which, as she is fond of saying, paid the rent, but didn’t do much toward feeding the soul. A life-long scribbler, Johnson began to write mysteries in the late 1980s, and found herself faced with the familiar bad news of diminishing markets and fewer opportunities for emerging writers, so she launched the book company in 1998. To date, OTP has published more than 300 books in paper, and 200 in digital formats, most of which are still in print. Johnson and OTP have just relocated to California's Central Valley from Central Illinois. In her rare-non-working moments, Johnson likes to garden, and, of course, see to the contentment of her beloved cat, Frida Khalo.
