Proud Of East Texas: Nancy Bell

By Joan Hallmark - bio | email

Pittsburg, TX (KLTV)  If you live in Pittsburg, Texas you just may find yourself a character in Nancy Bell's mystery novels.

Bell has written five best-selling mystery novels about "Biggie" and her grandson J.R. The first novel "Biggie And The Poisoned Politician" was a hit from the first and was featured in top magazines. Bell's new series is about a small town judge-sleuth named Jackson Crane. Bell says "Pittsburg never stops giving", meaning she never runs out of material in the small East Texas town, and while the characters are all locals, Bell says they never seem to recognize themselves in the books, but do recognize others. Bell's books are available from most book sources.
