If you're looking to read stories with words like vicissitude, chthonic, or oeuvre, you won't find them in mine. I write purely to entertain: introducing quirky, lovable, incorrigible, and funny characters that yearn to find a place in your heart.
I also have a shorter story section (BM) designed for you members of the Throne Readers Club.
Need a new gift idea? Wrap up a Libby Belle collection of short stories, a six-pack of toilet paper, and a bottle of wine. Meant for fun reading - a short break from reality. Cheers!

"The Gift" and "Aftermath" were published in Adelaide Literary Mag NY/Lisbon and my first book by this beautiful company is out now - Nov 2020

Those of you who have read my stories, your encouragement has rocked my world!
"I have had the privilege to read Libby’s charming, bighearted short stories, filled with entertainment. You read one, then you can’t wait to read the next; all different, never the same in scope. An unfaltering storyteller, Libby writes each story with fluidity, grace and with so much creativity, she’ll leave you with a smile. I found myself cheering for each new character she creates with an explosion of warmth and celebration. Enchanting - I can see any one of them being made into a screenplay. It’s a rare talent to write short stories and make it seem as if you wrote a novel in each story."
