Shannon Bell is a Florida-based author who is happily married to the man of her dreams and a spitfire of a daughter. She has a BA in Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida. She travels frequently and loves wine, and finds that the two are not mutually exclusive. She's also in love with tales that go bump in the night, especially if they happen to involve hot vampires. When she's feeling particularly naughty, she writes under the pen name of Bella Bordeaux.
