About Beatrice Bowles
Writer, Storyteller, Gardener...
To know Beatrice, or Bea, as friends called her, was to love her. Small in size but incandescent in spirit, Bea was a storyteller, writer, and lover of nature. She lived and wrote in her childhood home on a hillside covered in a magical garden Bea cultivated herself.
Educated at Vassar College, Bea connected with authors and luminaries including Joseph Campbell, X, Y, and Z. Bea loved to entertain, and opened her home to artists, writers, and other creatives.
Bea was in the midst of building a legacy and body of work, including her audiobook Cat Tales and her YA eco-occult thriller A Ring of Riddles when she passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in 2021. Her love, generosity, and wonderfully charismatic presence is missed by parents, children, gardeners, an international community of writers and storytellers, and of course her family.
Bea’s greatest wish was to connect children to the wonders of nature and the beauty of creation spanning time and culture.
Join us in honoring Bea’s legacy and creating magic for children of all ages.
