Legendary bluesman Robert Johnson is a musician wrapped in mystery. It is said that one night after being run off from a juke joint, Johnson took his guitar to a south Mississippi crossroads and met the devil. There, they say he traded his soul to become the greatest blues player in the world. The devil tuned and played a bit on Johnson’s guitar, granting his wish, but at what cost? No deal with the devil is simple. What happened to Johnson after that?
I love the blues. Robert Johnson’s story fascinated me from the moment I heard it and I’ve always wanted to write about it. One day while listening to his recordings, an outline came to me out of the blue (pun intended) for a different take on the legend of the man many consider to be the godfather of rock-n-roll. I’m looking forward to penning this historical fiction piece about love, danger, betrayal, music—and a little bit of the supernatural. I can’t wait to share it with you!
