Fiona Bell

Fiona Bell lives in tropical Cairns with her husband and four kids. When she’s not writing short stories or young adult fiction she can be found with a whiteboard marker in one hand and a classic novel in the other, trying to inspire teenagers to love English as much as she does.

Fiona is currently editing another YA novel set in the far north. Waterhole is her first book.
