William Bell

William Bell was born and raised in Toronto. In high school, he wrote poetry and had a story published in the school yearbook.

Bell has a Masters degree in Literature, and another in Education: Curriculum and Administration. He has taught English in Canadian high schools, in universities in China, and at UBC. It was in China that he met Ting-Xing Ye, with whom he wrote Throwaway Daughter.

The inspiration to become a writer came when Bell heard a speech by John Metcalfe, author of one of his favourite short stories. Some of Bell's books are used in high school curricula.

Bell says he likes to write for young people because they are "the best audience: they are loyal to the writers they like and they are enthusiastic readers".
