Carmi L. Johnson is a woman of many trades. She is a high school graduate, stationary engineer, laboratory technician, custodian, manicurist, and author. Carmi has written two books, Mommy, Why Did You Choose Your Boyfriend Over Me? and Wasted Waters. Wasted Waters is a book that deals with racism in the San Francisco, Bay area.

Some of the proceeds from the sale of Johnson’s book, Mommy, why did you choose your boyfriend over me?, will go towards helping pay for Kaila’s college education.
