Cat adorer and chocolate lover, Holly Bell is a photographer and video maker when not writing. Holly lives in the UK and is a mixture of English, Scottish, Cornish and Welsh, among other ingredients.

Whilst being an enthusiastic novel reader, Holly has had a lifetime's experience in writing non-fiction. Amanda Cadabra and The Hidey-Hole Truth is her first official venture into the realms of fiction and there is no looking back in the foreseeable future.

​Her favourite animal is called Bobby. He is a black cat. Purely coincidental. Of course.
