About the Author
Crystal J. Bell is a writer and videographer who calls the Rocky Mountains her home. After graduating from Colorado State University with her BA, she began writing in earnest and hasn't looked back since. When she isn't drinking up autumn like the elixir of life, she can be found on the back patio with her laptop and a book, out on the reservoirs on her stand-up paddleboard, or cooking in the kitchen with her husband. Most likely pasta. The Lamplighter is her debut young adult novel.
Reviews

"Bell valiantly braids edge-of-the-seat plotting, moody imagery, and evocatively rendered characters into unsettling knots. Temperance's struggles to prove herself in her male-dominated society are explored with depth and nuance, making this chilling mystery feel at once like a classic folktale and a sharp allegory for the obstacles of modern women." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)


"The twist at the end is satisfying, and the spooky atmosphere and (righteous) female rage linger like the town's infamous fog. Chilling." --Kirkus Reviews


"Treachery abounds in the historical novel The Lamplighter, wherein crime comes to a seaport town with insidious consequences for its residents." --Foreword Reviews


"Bell's novel, with its nineteenth-century setting, is a marvel of the ominous and mind-bending incident." --Booklist
