Bella Michaels is the pen name of a contemporary romance author who wants desperately to write a slow burn love triangle romance but is afraid of a reader riot!

When not writing steamy small town romance like the Grado Valley Vineyards series—or historical romance as Cecelia Mecca and paranormal (vampire) romance as C.L. Mecca—Bella loves dreaming up new sassy heroines and alpha heroes for readers to enjoy armed with a PhD she no longer uses and copious amounts of chai.

Firmly House Stark, this Disney fanatic lives with her husband and two teens in Pennsylvania where she enjoys drinking pinot noir and planning girls trips.
