Welcome to Krista Bell’s website

Thank you for visiting my website. I’m an Australian author with 26 books for young readers published over the last 23 years – with several more in the pipeline.

My first book, JEZZA, a picture book about a dog that plays AFL football, was illustrated by Kym Lardner and was first published way back in 1991.

Since then I’ve ┬áhad a wide variety of picture books, chapter books and junior novels published for young readers aged between 4 and 14.

You can check out all my books on the BOOKS page. I hope you enjoy reading about my latest titles and that you rush to your nearest library to borrow them.

Books in Print

One of my newest books is

BURNING THE BAILS: The story of the Ashes.

It’s a cricket legend that I needed to share with you as most people do not know the real story.

If you would like to write to me about one of my books you’ve read or to ask me a question about it, then please send me an email via the CONTACT box.

I might choose to post your letter on my site but, if you would prefer me not to do that, then please let me know.


If you would like Krista to visit your school, to give talks or do some workshops, please contact her via email for pricing and availability.
