WKMG (Orlando) Anchor Lisa Bell can add author to her resume.

Bell is releasing her first children's book, "Norman the Watchful Gnome."

the book is described as a sweet, bedtime story, Norman the Watchful Gnome, takes readers on a journey through Norman’s colorful vegetable garden while carrots, zucchini and more settle in for the night. Fun and vibrant illustrations bring Norman and his garden friends to life.

"Norman the Watchful Gnome" is the first in a series of children's books that Bell has authored featuring Norman the Gnome. Bell hopes to cultivate the love of gardening and reading among young children.

"After a trip to Leu Gardens (in Orlando), we were inspired to plant our own vegetable garden. A few days later, a little gnome appeared in our garden, whom my boys immediately named Norman. It was a gift from my co-anchor and dear friend, Ginger Gadsden, and from there, the seeds for Norman the Watchful Gnome were officially planted."

Bell hopes her books will encourage parents and children to discover the benefits of gardening.
