Eric Bell graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Psychology and a minor in English. Once the other kids at recess began pretending to go on the adventures he came up with, he never stopped telling stories. His first novel, Alan Cole Is Not a Coward, is out now; a sequel, Alan Cole Doesn’t Dance, will come out in fall 2018
