Dr. Johnson's first book, A Caregiver's Guide: Insights into the Later Years, combines knowledge of the grief and aging fields with illustrative vignettes, both her own and those of others. She describes the various categories of grief that people can experience and how those griefs can accumulate by the time a person is elderly. Caregivers can learn how to interpret behaviors and help patients learn to cope more effectively with their grief. She gives caregivers, both professionals and family members, practical tools to make caregiving a rewarding experience.

Her second book, Love and Asperger's: Jim and Mary's Excellent Adventure, is a memoir of her life with her second husband. Written at his request, it details the struggles with Asperger's until Jim was eventually diagnosed. He felt great relief at knowing why he had always felt different, and he wanted other people to understand Asperger's.
