Australian Voices in Print & Ettalong Diggers Presents : An exclusive event where you can see and meet authors introducing their books in their own words. Gail Bell is an Australian author of short stories, two non-fiction books, travel writing, book reviews, critical essays and long form journalism. Her books and essays have won acclaim and prizes. Bell began publishing short stories and journalism for speciality magazines in the 1990's. Her first book, The Poison Principle became a best seller and won the New South Wales Premier's Literary Award for non-fiction in 2002. The Poison Principle is part memoir, part mystery, part journey through the dark corridors of poison history. It took ten years, off and on, to complete, much of that time spent reading through libraries in Australia, America and England - anywhere there was an archive of good poison stories.
Her second book, SHOT:A Personal Response to Guns and Trauma was shortlisted for the Nita Kibble Literary Award. Her third major publication, the Quarterly Essay #18 The Worried Well, led to strong public responses and national debate. Bell's journalism has appeared in many newspapers and magazines, in Australia and overseas. She has written for the New York Times and the UK Sunday Telegraph.
