Sandy Ward Bell

Fiction Writer

“Whether told in the form of letters or narration, Sandy’s stories take us to the hearts and minds of Women as they react to life with strength and purpose.”

-Louise Draper Colln, author of Women Of The Land and The Women Of Rogers Street


“Truly, one of the most clever grouping of short stories I’ve ever read. Each one is different, imaginative, and surprising. Enjoyed them all.”

-Marilyn Meredith, author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree series


“You won’t need defibrillator paddles to stimulate your heart when you read Bold. Her use of first person provides an intimate connection with the characters. You’ll want to find out what happens and why.”

-Ruth Lebovitz, fiction and feature writer


“Blimey! That was like necking an espresso while having a cold shower. Good stuff!”

-Catriona McPherson, author of the Dandy Gilver series


“Bell brings her talent for character development, description, and rich details to bear in the unfolding of a cast of women--bold and bright women, cunning, courageous, and colorful--a “rainbow explosion” of women. Read the stories, remember the women, and be inspired!”

-Kathy Rhodes, author of Remember the Dragonflies: A Memoir of Grief and Healing


“Bell takes imagination to a whole new level in these lighthearted, fun, smart short stories. A joy to read and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.”

-Stephanie Drake, actress


“The tripping gals in these stories take you in all directions – not always where you want to go but, from time to time, where you might have been.”

-Suzanne Webb Brunson, journalist and fiction writer


“The Tales in the Bold collection are so beautifully crafted that they become new, fresh, and interesting. Bell opts for a satisfying examination of the inherent strength of the female spirit.”

-Regina Jeffers, award-winning author of romantic suspense and Austenesque novels


“Bells collection paints women in all their quirky, larcenous, and sometimes murderous glory. Her offhanded dialogue and zany plots will remind you of all the eccentric, gutsy broads you know. A delightful read.”

-Micki Fuhrman, author and songwriter


“An intriguing look at the power--sometimes dark power--of the female mind. I loved every unexpected twist!”

-Annette Dashofy, USA Today bestselling author of the Zoe Chambers Mystery Series


“I found this collection of short stories about strong and resilient women to be imaginative, absorbing, and satisfying. It is a book you will not want to end!”

-Carole Webb Slater, author of Letters From the Heart 1943-1946


“Shocking, whimsical, terrifying and childlike are the mixed bag in this collection. Your jaw will drop and a smile will sneak onto your face as you read.”

-Susie Dunahm, fiction writer, blogger, and humor columnist


“Bell offers descriptive literature that keeps you on the edge of your seat. When it comes to writing with a twist, she treats you to the unexpected, on a ride to the dark side, to the recesses of the brain where only the brave want to visit. She is also gifted at making fun of the human condition, pointing out the insanity of it all.”

-Phyllis Johnson, columnist, photojournalist, poet, and YA suspense author
