E.D.E. Bell writes unique fantasy fiction that blends traditional and modern elements. She combines rich world building, magic, and fancy with philosophical themes of identity, prejudice, violence, compassion, personal burdens, and the ways we are connected. With diverse characters including pregnant wizards, dragon politicians, talking animals, and genderfluid elves, Bell’s stories explore new territory in the realm of fantasy.

With an MSE in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, three amazing children, and nearly two decades in technical intelligence, she now applies her magic to the creation of genre-bending fantasy fiction.

Grant,

I love pro-vegan fiction too. As for my thoughts on animal rights, they are complex and evolving. I am a vegan and believe strongly in human compassion toward other animal species. You can see more about how it impacts my writing here:

No, the female dragons are not evil, though the story starts off with a couple who are not so virtuous. The dragon society does have gender equality (unlike the human society) though, so a villain is just as likely to be a female. There are several heroes in the dragon world, many of them female. In fact, Jwala will be on the cover of Book 2: The Fettered Flame, which introduces several additional dragon heroes that I think you will enjoy.

Hope you enjoy The Banished Craft and thanks for the great question.(less)

Moms rally a lot on social media. Like, a lot. Memes, articles, videos. Even those Facebook posts that start with, “Moms! Need some advice.” (They don’t want advice from dads?) And it gets complicated, sometimes, rallying for one group of people without excluding another. And, yeah, I know the arguments – don’t take things so seriously, or don’t be the PC police.


Well, hit the sirens. Because I...
