About Beverly Bell
Beverly Bell’s interest in Marion Miley began with an article she wrote about the golfer for Women’s Sports and Fitness. In other magazine work, she won an award from the Indiana Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for her piece on an U.S. Air Force fighter jet that crashed into a hotel, killing 10 civilians. This was followed with another award about a five-year girl who was the victim of a domestic bombing incident in a K-Mart. Bell’s unpublished book was named a semi-finalist in the William Faulkner–William Wisdom competition (novel-in-progress category).
Because of her expertise and knowledge, Bell was a featured consultant in Kentucky Education Television’s documentary, Forgotten Fame: The Marion Miley Story, which won an Ohio Valley Chapter Regional Emmy. Her profiles include a Pulitzer Prize winning author, an Indianapolis 500 champion, a national sports broadcaster as well as politicians, CEOs and entrepreneurs. Bell lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband. They have two children.
