About  Author : Richard Bell

I have been writing a column entitled ‘Modern Fables’ since 2008 for Wassup Local magazine, which is distributed from Chicago to Milwaukee and all counties in between. I’m a writer and musician with an unusual sense of humour. I am originally from Chicago, married, and residing in Wisconsin. While some kids had to be funny so other kids would like them, I had to be funny so my parents would like me.

An interesting collection of stories that force you to think deeply about their meaning. The connections to real life are there, and you will have a good time trying to connect the dots. The stories are just the right length. Clearly entertaining, in a different way, it will become as easy of a read as you want it to be.

Review by: Richard Sanders
I’ve never read anything quite like LIFE SEEMED GOOD, BUT…, and I mean that in a good way. Certain comparisons almost come to mind: Mark Twain on mushrooms? Garrison Keillor with food poisoning? Maybe, but those examples don’t really capture the special, twisted magic of Richard Bell’s universe or his unique way of seeing things.
