Heather Bell (she/they) whole-heartedly believes that hidden within our everyday lives is a secret realm glimpsed through books, music, and children’s laughter. As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, Heather loves to portray diverse characters and gets especially excited for any story that reveals the world from a new or different perspective. Holding a BFA in Painting from the Kansas City Art Institute, she is a member of SCBWI, a Children’s Book Academy graduate, and a mommy.
When not illustrating and writing, she searches out story ideas as an undercover school bus driver.
