Bio

Donnell Ann Bell gave up her nonfiction career in newspapers and magazines because she was obsessed with the idea she could write a mystery or thriller. Her obsession paid off. An award-winning author, including a 2020 Colorado Book Award finalist for her latest release Black Pearl, Donnell’s other books include Buried Agendas, Betrayed, Deadly Recall, and The Past Came Hunting, all of which have been Amazon bestsellers. Currently she’s submitted book two of her cold case series and is hard at work researching book three.

More from Donnell

Before I was published in fiction, I paid my dues in the Unpublished World, finaling in or winning numerous Romance Writers of America® chapter competitions as well as several multi-genre writing competitions. I’m extremely proud to be listed as a two-time Golden Heart® finalist for RWA’s® highest competition. These particular accolades led to the publication of The Past Came Hunting and Deadly Recall.

I also co-own Crimescenewriter, a Groups.io format that connects law enforcement, legal and other professionals with writers working to get their stories right.
