About Allison Bell

Allison is a freelance writer, a mother of two, and the wife of a car-obsessed husband who got her addicted to Jeep 392s, Mercedes G-Wagons, and other vehicles she can't afford. While she writes content for a variety of companies, most of her work in recent years has been for KSL.com and KSL Cars. Allison's lucky to call the beautiful Utah mountains her home but slips away to the Pacific coast as often as she can with her family.
