The Teacup Journal

Welcome to The Teacup Journal! My name is Carole Lehr Johnson and I live in rural north Louisiana with my husband, Max, and our anti-social cat, Oliver. A veteran travel agent of 30 plus years, I am now head of genealogy at a local library. I recently completed my first novel manuscript and a few years ago, I published my first children’s book, “Pennie the Piglet.”

My only child, Daniel, lives in Boston, having graduated from Boston University. He now works for a Boston marketing firm. I have spent several trips to visit him and that historic city, including the Old North Church and the Isabella Gardner Museum.

The Teacup Journal has developed from my love of writing and afternoon tea. Journals are a bit of an obsession of mine….well, buying them anyway. Anything British is also of great interest to me—a true Anglophile. A piping hot cup of tea, romantic thatched cottages and the rolling hills of the English countryside are only a few reasons for this fascination. I have been blessed to travel to England several times and God willing, I will return for many more.

I love a good spot o' tea and some tea cakes

Besides writing, a few other hobbies of mine are gardening, sewing, reading, photography and painting. I am also actively involved in a local church and enjoy serving through our homeless ministry. I owe everything to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I hope you will embark on this blogging journey with me.

        God Bless,
