April 2016


Sidney Bell lives in the drizzly Pacific Northwest with her amazingly supportive husband. She received her MFA degree in Creative Writing in 2010, considered aiming for the Great American Novel, and then promptly started writing fanfiction instead. Eventually more realistic grown-ups convinced her to try writing something more fiscally responsible, which is how we ended up here.

When she’s not writing, she’s playing violent video games, yelling at the television during hockey games, or supporting her local library by turning books in late.

Thank you! I'm so pleased you've enjoyed my books!

And there are plans for another one! I'm working on Tobias's book, the second in the Woodbury Boys trilogy, right now. There's no release date yet, but I'll keep everyone posted on my website and social media. I won't let you miss it ;D

I don't plan to write a sequel for the book, though I'm pleased you enjoyed it enough to ask. I hope that's not too disappointing! I do have a couple of other books you can look at, though--the first in my Woodbury Boys trilogy, Loose Cannon, is out now, and the second will be out in a little over a month, if you're interested. You can find them both on my author page. Take care! ;D (less)

This is where I tell you that if you have flying fear or are traveling soon or just dislike really tasteless humor about plane crashes, you should hit the back button now. I sometimes deal with stress in weird, callous ways, often by offering terrifying facts or making inappropriate jokes about real issues, and if you're offended or freaked by that sort of thing, feel free to nope on out of her...

“If polar bears live at the North Pole, why doesn’t Santa use them to pull the sleigh?” Brogan asked, licking mustard off his thumb with the air of someone who thought they’d won the argument, which was dumb, because he never won. Embry was the uncontested champion of arguing in their house.
“Are you high?” Embry asked. “Have you seen a fucking polar bear? There’s no way they’re as aerodynamic as reindeer.”
“Polar bears make about as much sense as reindeer, seeing as neither of them can actually fly,” Brogan pointed out. “Polar bears are stronger, too. You’d only need half as many to get the job done.”
“Polar bears aren’t pack animals. You’d never get all of them attached to the sleigh at once.”
“Think how cool it would be, though. A whole troop of polar bears pulling a sleigh. There should be fire somewhere. A secondary propulsion system in case the bears get tired. Like a jet engine.” His eyes went wide with awe, presumably at his own genius. “There should be a jet engine, Embry.”
Sidney Bell, Bad Judgment

“It was amazing how deeply he’d fallen, and how fast. He couldn’t even be frightened of it. But then, it had always seemed stupid to him to feel fear after you stepped off the roof with only a cape around your neck. It was too late to do any good and it only ruined the trip down.”
Sidney Bell, Bad Judgment

“I didn’t make you take yours.” “I’m meaner than you,” Embry said. “That’s the God’s honest truth,” Brogan replied sourly,”

“I know many scientific facts about the human heart- not the least of which is that it's far easier to make a heart stop beating entirely than to keep it from loving the wrong person.”
Lisa Kleypas, Cold-Hearted Rake

“The purpose of society is to prevent natural behavior.”
Lisa Kleypas, Cold-Hearted Rake

“Helen spent three days in Rhys Winterbournes's room babbling incessantly while he lay there feverish and mostly silent. She became heartily tired of the sound of her own voice, and said something to that effect near the end of the second day.
"I'm not," he said shortly. "Keep talking.”
Lisa Kleypas, Cold-Hearted Rake

“We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves.

I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

“I have been astonished that men could die martyrs
for their religion--
I have shuddered at it,
I shudder no more.
I could be martyred for my religion.
Love is my religion
and I could die for that.
I could die for you.
My Creed is Love and you are its only tenet.”
John Keats
