"All I’ve ever really wanted to do is write stories for a living"

A little bit about P.G. Bell

About Me

I’m a native of south Wales, where I was raised on a diet of Greek mythology, ghost stories and Doctor Who. I’ve had all sorts of jobs over the years, from lifeguard to roller coaster operator, but all I’ve ever really wanted to do is write stories for a living.

And now I do! I still live in Wales, still enjoy mythology, ghost stories and Doctor Who, but now get to share them with my wife Anna and our two children.

The US cover of "Delivery to the Lost City", illustrated by Matt Sharack. The cover illustration shows Suzy, an 11 year old human girl, Wilmot, her green troll friend, and the Chief, a ghostly explorer, looking out of the window of a flying rocket-powered caravan as it sails over a tropical ocean. A string of desert islands is visible below them, along with a floating railway line on which an old fashion steam train is visible.
