Former Seattle biotech investor Steve Johnson is pitching the third humor book he’s written since downshifting to country life on a farm near Walla Walla.
Blue Walla includes “humorous stories about how to live life slow” according to a press release from his PR firm. He writes under the pen name Sam McLeod.
Johnson co-founded Altitude Life Science Ventures and was managing partner and president of Tradegar Investments and Perennial Ventures from 1992 to 2003. Among his major investments were Caliper, Rosetta Inpharmatics and Illumina.
When I heard the name of Johnson’s Web site – LettersfromWallaWalla.com – I thought it may have something to do with the penitentiary, but that landmark doesn’t appear on the site’s nifty interactive map.
