Known as a keen strategist for creative professionals like authors and musicians, Patricia Johnson-Harris knows how to get things done despite any obstacles. This native New Yorker left her family and friends and moved her and her sons to Baltimore to build a better life. Without knowing anyone in the area, she became a corporate accountant while supporting her son in various activities. Like many professionals, she sought opportunities to create additional streams of income and found her niche in supporting others who needed marketing and promotion.
As the founder of the African American Authors Expo, she combined her gift of marketing and event management with her God given ability to build strong relationships. The Expo is now in its 7th year and is becoming the largest gathering of authors and book lovers on the East Coast. She has created marketing and promotional events as the VP of Charm City Jazz, CEO of the Vendors Network and President of the Youth Writers Challenge, a non-profit 501 c3 organization. Her commitment to excellence has earned her awards such as the Women of Power Award (2012), Power of Love Award (2014) and the Baltimore Times Business Savoy Award. She is now happily married to her best friend and business partner, Roger Harris and they have 4 children. Patricia and her family reside in Maryland.
