Author Biography

Bella James is the author of The Girl Who Cried Wolf, and the sequel -Girl With a Wine Glass- which will be published late 2018.

She writes gritty and intense YA novels that pull no punches in the trials of transitioning from child to adulthood.

Bella worked for many years with young people who were facing exclusion from mainstream schools, and is a passionate crusader in dispelling the challenges we face all our lives -trying to fit into a world that doesn’t always accept us for who we want to be.

A perfect blend of Dystopia and Sci-Fi *****

Intrigued by the cover and great title I was not disappointed with this perfectly crafted Thriller. I love when writers can cross genres to make the unbelievable believable.
"Unputdownable" in every sense.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf by Bella  James
"This book was really interesting to read.
Anna is bully and far from charming, but her dark humour made me love her and cried with her.
Her love story with Michael is so touching and is so worth to read this book.
About to start the next book!

Some novels read like a summer's afternoon - sipping elderflower champagne under a blanket of blue sky.
