by Donnell Ann Bell One of the greatest rewards in life is if a person can go to work every day and enjoy what they’re doing. I had such a job during my tenure at the Colorado Springs Business Journal. It was a place I learned the ins and outs of the Associated Press Stylebook […]

By Donnell Ann Bell “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ― George Eliot “ “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” ― Andy Warhol I didn’t go to Harvard. I write a character that enjoys a sterling curriculum vitae, but unlike […]
by Donnell Ann Bell Well, it’s happened. I survived my sixth book release. I wrote blogs, put out a newsletter, attended Facebook parties, attended a fantastic Zoom presentation with the Corrales Community Library (near Albuquerque), appeared on my local community radio program, worked on my own blog, and made some valuable and very sweet connections […]
Happy Monday, everyone! Along with Stiletto Gang, which I’m pleased to belong to, I’m on a Facebook group with several romantic suspense, paranormal romantic suspense, and mainstream suspense authors.

Good Monday morning. I slept like the proverbial rock last night.

Happy Valentines all. So excited today’s my day to blog because it gives me an opportunity to interrupt this session to tell you about the last day of my sale. I’m traditionally published and my publisher places my books on sale, not me. So, before I get to my blog, allow me to a quick […]

She was able to celebrate her 41st wedding anniversary with her husband, and I know firsthand how proud and delighted she was with her daughters, spouses, and grandchildren. These people were her world. For […]
Does anyone remember in our school-age years when our instructors handed out assignments and we had X amount of time to complete? Sometimes students had a week. Often, work was due the next day. Many times, I felt ill-prepared and handed in work I considered less than my best. On those days I was left […]
Sing along with me. . . Book edits and kitchen remodels don’t mix! I’ve been working on editing changes, proofreading galore on book two of my cold case series, all while engrossed in a kitchen remodel and choking on dust and chaos. To tell you how much I miss my sink, stove, and dishwasher is […]
