After growing up in Surrey, Johanna Bell cut her teeth on local newspapers in Essex. She spent ten years working in the county, eventually branching into magazine journalism with stints as a features writer and then commissioning editor at Full House magazine. She now has more than sixteen years’ experience in print media.
Her freelance life has seen her working on juicy real life stories for the women’s weekly magazine market, as well as hard-hitting news stories for national newspapers and prepping her case studies for TV interviews.
Since becoming a mum, Johanna has been thinking more and more about her long-term goal of writing a book, and is excited to get started on the WW1 saga she has been commissioned to write (Hodder, 2019).
When she’s not interviewing case studies or writing, Johanna can be found walking her dog, playing peek-a-boo with her daughter and trying to get back into fitness – with not much success!
