Tamara Duricka Johnson

Tamara Duricka Johnson is a journalist, blogger, and freelance writer with a background in television news. She was a writer for ABC’s Good Morning America and has been a newscast producer at KATU-TV in Portland, Oregon, KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, Utah and WSLS-TV in Roanoke, Virginia. She is a member of the Writers Guild of America.

As a motivated undergrad, Johnson rushed through Roanoke College in just three years. Later, she received her master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, where she was awarded the Lee Bollinger Fellowship. Johnson first started writing about dating in New York while she was in grad school: her master’s project, a radio documentary called Celibacy and the City, was an examination of the dating lives of single Mormons in Manhattan.

Johnson is an avid movie and theater-goer who takes pride in finding good deals on dates and travel adventures. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who she met during the life-changing blogging/dating extravaganza that inspired this book.
