E.D.E. Bell writes unconventional fantasy fiction that blends traditional and modern elements. She combines rich world building, magic, and fancy with philosophical themes of identity, prejudice, violence, compassion, personal burdens, and the ways we are connected. With diverse characters including pregnant wizards, dragon politicians, talking animals, and gender-neutral elves, Bell’s stories explore new territory in the realm of fantasy. A mom, engineer, technical advisor, and vegan, her writing offers something for everyone. Her novels, including The Banished Craft and The Fettered Flame are described by reviewers as “deeply imaginative,” “complex and intelligent,” “sensitive and insightful,” and “a breath of fresh air.” Her books are written for adults but are suitable for mature young adults. She sells beautiful offset-printed hardcovers that are both bookshelf and gift quality and would love to sign one to you or for a friend.
