Arnold Johnston comes to the subject of Robert Burns naturally, having been born in Scottland in 1942. He and his family emigrated to the United States in 1951, and he became a naturalized American Citizen in 1962; but he retains a deep interest in his native country, its traditions, its literature, its music and its people. He wrote ‘The Witching Voice’ in 1972 and in that same year saw its successful premier at the New Vic Theatre in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Though he has published fiction, poetry, and criticism, the drama is fast becoming his major writing interest. He and his wife Kristin live in Kalamazoo, where he teaches creative writing at Western Michigan University.
