Joanna Franklin Bell


Joanna Franklin Bell is a mother of three, living outside of Baltimore, Maryland. She has always loved to read, especially when she was young, so she sat down to write the kind of book she would have enjoyed when she was a child – something full of talking animals, a little bit of magic, and a lot of adventure. Love, loss, death, and strange homecomings tear at her heartstrings, and she laughed and cried while she wrote. Unfortunately, she is allergic to cats, so if she ever meets Muse one day, she’ll have to greet her from a distance.
