Born in Louisiana, Belle Manuel spent her early years learning to be a good Cajun girl before moving to Texas. She visits Louisiana often, enjoying the quiet break from the active Texas life. When not writing, Belle enjoys crochet and crossword puzzles. Belle first began writing in middle school, where her first writing job was getting paid by other students to write stories for them. She enjoyed turning their random requests into interesting stories, and the money she made helped fund her reading habit.
Belle’s debut novel, Fire, was released in July 2015. Fire began with an idea, but quickly took on a life of it’s own and changed as Belle wrote it. With all the adjustments and improvements, it eventually evolved into The Elemental Series. She is currently writing the second book in the series.
