"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.
