Author Interview & Book Giveaway: Cicada by Belle Whittington

Welcome to Author Belle Whittington

Belle resides somewhere north of Houston, Texas in a small inconsequential town with the smallest most inconsequential name.

As a student of literature, Belle is earning her degree in English at the University of Houston. She hopes to teach literature at the college level some day.
