 MONTRÉAL, Québec – August 2020 - Imagine there is someone out there in the world who looks exactly like you. When author/illustrator Britta Johanna was young, her mother presented this scenario to her. This curiosity eventually became the inspiration for That One Green Tile which is a rhyming, melodic children’s picture where the main character is propelled into a journey of the imagination. The book holds a powerful message in today’s world about unity and diversity. It is currently available through Friesen Press, Ingram Wholesale --- Amazon, Barnes & Noble, plus 40,000+ retailers, libraries, and distributers worldwide---as well as electronic distribution channels.

In her mind, the little girl visits locales from Spain to Japan, visualizing this other person in her familiar surroundings and asking the most musing questions. At the end of the story, readers are reminded that for all of our similarities, each one is unique. And for all our differences, we share the same sky.
Britta Johanna is a creative professional, mother, and grandmother originally from Olympia, Washington, U.S. and currently living a life of plenty in Montréal, Québec, Canada.

 Britta Johanna is a children’s book author and illustrator, yet she certainly does not limit herself to those titles in the creative world. Born in Olympia, Washington, United States, Britta began writing children’s books during her first year of teaching after having enrolled in a soul-capturing children’s literature class at university. In fact, That One Green Tile was written twenty years ago, yet the impact that the words have in our present global experience will ring loudly for our human family.

In 2018, Britta was lured to the exciting cultural center of Montréal, Québec to seek inspiration and a spark in the beautiful country of Canada where her daughters and grandson reside. This empowering journey led her to renew her sense of self and create a life of following her passion of poetry and art in children’s books.

The stories that she writes deliver an eloquent rhyming cadence complemented with her ethereal handcrafted paper collages of stunning colors and textures to depict scenes that emote a sense of wonder. She possesses degrees in Art as well as Education and holds a master’s degree in Museums and Galleries. She served as a children’s educator for more than ten years and also exhibited her art on the West and East Coasts of the United States. More than anything, she just likes to play.

Britta spends her time between Seattle, Washington, U.S. and Montréal, Québec, Canada.
