About Belle Brett

Belle Brett ( is a proud graduate of GrubStreet’s Novel Incubator program. As a child, she produced what would now be called graphic novels, but alas, only the drawings remain as the words were strictly in the oral tradition. Now, several degrees and careers later (teacher, career counselor, researcher), she writes fiction (no pictures, but with a cinematic flavor) about coming-of-age across the life span. Her debut novel, Gina in the Floating World, was published in September 2018 by She Writes Press. She is also an artist (, blogs on “slow downsizing” (, and enjoys traveling and dancing with her husband and aging contemporaries to live music in the dive bars of Somerville and Cambridge. All of it is grist for her writing mill.
