Writing for K. C. Bell is making pictures with words. Writing satire for Spoof.com adds smiles to those pictures. When not writing, the author is making pictures with two treasured Nikon cameras that fix her view permanently. Work in the darkroom often becomes as compelling as cross- referencing with Thesaurus and Webster's. Real fun. Favorite dictionary: Clement Wood's Rhyming Dictionary. Born and raised in San Francisco, Ms. Bell has a Bachelor’s degree in English and another in Education from the San Francisco College for Women. She also studied photography at Stanford University. Jobs held: baby sitter, nurse's aid, (at fourteen, she started writing a book set in a hospital and needed background information) telephone operator, department store sales, art department librarian, newspaper, school teacher, cook, baker, chauffeur, cleaning lady, dog walker, accountant, laundress, investment banker, gardener, window cleaner, furniture designer and is a so, so cook and carpenter. K.C.Bell has written four books: Changing Plains, True North, Green Sex, and A Very British Lesson. The four are available on amazon.com. A fifth book, True South, is completed and should be out by Christmas.
