Thanks for coming to my website!
It’s under construction…but who cares, right? The best reason to have a website is that maybe, someday, someone who has read one of my books will send me a shout-out. I love getting email from readers! So write to me at CathleenDavittBell@gmail.com and I promise I’ll write you back.
(I also love to visit book clubs, libraries, and schools. If you read Little Blog on the Prairie, I’ll even teach you how to make butter.)
Below is the quick skinny on my books for kids and teens. You can find them at Amazon, on Audible, and on Kindle. Cheers! –Cathleen
Slipping (Bloomsbury, 2008) A video game-addicted boy named Michael’s got enough problems just getting his homework done and dealing with his best friend suddenly sitting with the cool kids at lunch. He has no capacity to deal with a dead grandpa who suddenly starts appearing to him as a ghost. But his grandpa isn’t going anywhere and if Michael isn’t careful, might end up taking Michael with him into the river of the dead. 5th grade and up.
Little Blog on the Prairie (Bloomsbury, 2010) When Genevieve’s mom drags the whole family to frontier history camp (Full-on 19th century costumes? Yes. Computers? No.), Gen sneaks in a cell phone and accidentally starts a blog. Which accidentally becomes famous. And not-so-accidentally gets Gen into all kinds of trouble. 4th grade and up.
The Amanda Project: Unraveled (Harper 2011) The fourth in a fast-paced mystery/thriller series for middle school readers, created by the editor of the Percy Jackson series: One day, your best friend Amanda disappears. Except it turns out you’re not her only best friend. There are others. She’s tasked you all with finding her. Because she’s in danger. So are you. And, oh, there’s one more thing? Amanda isn’t her real name. In fact, nothing you thought you knew about her is true. Middle school and up.
I Remember You (Knopf, forthcoming 2015) Juliet and Lucas are falling in love. They have a connection that feels instant and deep. But when Lucas “remembers” things about Juliet he couldn’t possibly know, Juliet begins to wonder if something is wrong. But she’s also so deeply in love, she doesn’t care. High school.
