Agent: Broo Doherty
Joanna worked in production at the BBC for ten years before becoming a full time writer.
On TV she has written for Crossroads, Doctors and Eastenders, but her longest association was with Radio 4’s long-running drama, The Archers, for which she also wrote or co-wrote eight spin-off books, five of them novelisations.
Her own fiction has a more urban setting – a department store, its staff and life on the Home Front in World War Two. There are currently four novels in the Shop Girls series, published by Harper Collins, with two more on the way for 2021 and 2022.
She is married with one daughter.
