All About Anara Bella

By day Anara is a mild-mannered writer pounding out stories on her trusty keyboard. But by night she’s the Domestic Avenger, ready to take on any and all evil that gets in her way. Okay, so the evils in question are only despicable dust bunnies and dastardly dirty dishes but they are evil. And diabolically prolific too.

In reality, Anara lives a quiet life in the suburbs with her hubby and two adorable cats, JuJube and JellyBean. Unlike most authors, Anara didn’t spend her childhood writing stories. She’d been too busy avidly reading every romance she could get her hands on. Until a friend suggested she try her hand at writing one. Rising to the challenge, she did just that, only to discover to her utter astonishment that she actually loved writing even more than reading. She’s been working away at it ever since.

In 2004 she won Lori Foster’s Novella Contest which started her exciting journey towards publication. Her first published book, Ready or Not, is based on her winning entry from that contest.

A Change for the Better

By On Sep 4 2013, 9:10 am

Love it or hate it, change is inevitable. As the saying goes, nothing ever stays the same and that’s truer today than it ever was. We barely get used to something before it’s updated, or something new and different comes along. Sometimes it’s a good thing, and sometimes, yeah, not so much. But, on whatever end of the spectrum it falls, we usually don’t have any choice but to accept it.

Recently, I heard the very sad news that one of my favorite authors, Elizabeth Peters, had passed away. It started me thinking about her books and all the pleasurable hours I’d spent reading them, which of course, brought on an overwhelming wave of nostalgia and the urge to read her books again. This desire had me checking out my local library online. Read more…

What’s With All The Zombies?

By On Apr 19 2013, 8:29 am

For quite some time now I’ve noticed a rather bewildering trend. More and more people are talking about zombies. At first I didn’t pay much attention, thinking it was an anomaly, but as the months passed I began to realize, much to my complete mystification, that if anything the interest in zombies was growing. I [...]

Priorities. Or, why are there never enough hours in a day?

By On Jul 7 2012, 2:09 pm

I don’t know about you, but finding the time to fit everything I want and need to do into a day is more than a little bit of a challenge. There are always a never ending number of fiddly things I have to get done, and by the time I get through them all they’ve [...]

Are You Crafty?

By On Jan 27 2012, 9:00 am

Crafty. A rather fun little word, it literally means to be skilled in deception. But I’ve also heard it used in casual conversation when referring to a totally different kind of skill. As a writer, the first thing I think of when I hear the word craft is the craft of writing, which of course [...]

What’s Not To Love?

By On Aug 27 2011, 9:00 am

Books. I love everything about them. The way they smell. The way they look and feel in my hands. The pretty picture on the cover. And beyond the superficial stuff, they contain within their precious pages a treasure without price. Thanks to books, there’s no limit to the places I can go, the people I [...]
