Unlock Old Dreams and New Dimensions within New Xulon Title

A.L. Bell engages readers' imaginations and helps revive a connection with God

MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A.L. Bell's new book, Mr. Friedman's Fireside Tales 2: More Adventures from Parallel Dimensions ($21.49, paperback, 9781628396379; $9.99, e-book, 9781628396386) is a skillfully written story that encompasses seven vivid tales, as told by the protagonist, Mr. Friedman, to a group of orphan children. The character of Mr. Friedman acts as a representation of God: a father figure in the lives of these youths. The overall theme in this book is connecting, or perhaps reconnecting, with God—as the true Father that He is.


"Written from the heart, and inspired by personal experiences and learning in the avenue of faith in adversity, this book will inspire and touch hearts with new hope," states the author. "…I would hope [that readers can take away] an increasing awareness of the importance of connecting with one's own identity… alongside the importance of a sense of family and belonging."

A.L. Bell obtained a degree in music, performing arts, an M.A in music therapy and an advanced diploma in acting at drama school. The author continues, "During this time, my writing became increasingly unlocked. Exploring each creative art helped me to view expression from different perspectives, using each study as a tool to shape my writing, both in songs and in stories. Studying plays and acting them out assisted me in bringing characters 'off the page,' and to view in detail the essence of human nature, whilst examining the unique way in which characters fit into the scene­—an essential awareness in all writers."
