Author Spotlight (Marshall C. Bell)

This brother was one of the featured authors at the 4th Annual AAA Expo (in Timonium, MD) August 2013. I was able to chat with him for a moment and he has a story to tell (and truthfully, we need more brothers like him). So, without further ado, show your love for my brother & fellow author, Marshall C. Bell.

Marshall C. Bell is a Howard University alum, entrepreneur, author, and host of Midday Magazine with Marshall Bell on Radio One WOLB 1010-AM. The former co-host of Celebrity Magazine Live with Donna Briggs and Marshall Bell is a highly sought after motivational speaker, political consultant and commentator, and the managing partner of The Bell Group, LLC, based in Baltimore, Maryland.

Marshall’s background in politics extends over 25 years, beginning with his role as campaign manager for his brother, former Baltimore City Council President, Lawrence Bell III, in 1986. Over the years, he has worked with numerous candidates and causes, both local and national, and has developed a hard earned reputation as one of the sharpest campaign strategists throughout the State of Maryland.

Marshall has a passion for helping people, especially young men and women struggling to find their way through tough and challenging circumstances. He motivates and encourages listeners to achieve their personal goals by making wise decisions, staying focused on success, taking responsibility for their lives, and giving back to the communities from which they come.

A twice published author, Marshall’s first book of fiction, The Darkest Secret, published in 2009, received critical acclaim for its frank and earnest dissection of race relations in the new millennium. His latest work, the eagerly anticipated, Baltimore Blues: Harm City, was released in August, 2012. When asked what motivated him while writing the gritty urban drama, Marshall responded, "It was important for me to be authentic when telling Cameron's story because I know he represents far too many of our youth in America today. They are truly the forgotten children."

Marshall enjoys sports, shooting pool, mentoring young men, and is the proud father of two sons, Kyle and Jordan.

Recently, Marshall announced his intention to run for The Democratic State Central Committee, representing Maryland's 40th Legislative District.
