Sandy Ward Bell


I grew up in Victor, NY with loving parents, an older brother, and younger sister. I received my B.A. in Speech Communications and Public Relations from Geneseo State University, which led to a successful career as a radio announcer and promotion director. Basically radio was my first love. I packed my tan Ford Escort and drove to Augusta, GA, to become the Love Songs Host on Sunny 105, and then, did middays at the rock and roll station WRXR. Next came love, marriage, and my occupation changed to mother.  

The art of storytelling became my new passion. My motto, "You can never be a member of too many book clubs." Writing fiction became a natural next step. My first novel, In Zoey's Head, reflects my experience with the media and pop culture. My second book, Parked at the Mansfields', highlights my appreciation for Jane Austen's timeless story. My third book, Bold, represents my need to honor women’s courage.

My family has also lived in Baltimore and Pittsburgh, and now we call Nashville home.
