Author Sabin W. Johnson talks about ‘The Jolly Shop’

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla.- Sabin W. Johnson, author of “The Jolly Shop,” conceived the idea for this book while he was deployed in the Middle East during operations OIF and OEF.

It may seem odd to some that he would have an idea for a children’s book during deployment, especially when the word ‘sleep’ was not in his vocabulary.

The way he explains this is: “no matter how big a role I may have had over there, I never felt like it was enough. I always looked at the bigger picture, the grand scheme of things and came to the conclusion that I had much more to share than just serving my country.”

Johnson said he hopes to have a bigger overall impact now by bringing smiles to our youths and our families by sharing the creative abilities he’s been blessed with. Next to writing, wildlife, and the outdoors, staying in great shape is also very important to him.

He spent 10 years in the US Navy and received awards for the physical fitness programs he implemented to help others succeed.

“When you have a gift that you can use to help and share with others – give all you can, especially if it benefits their health and wellness. I can only hope that in one way or another I can have a positive impact that will last.”
