She is the organist at Faith Lutheran Church in historic down town Staunton, Virginia. Her hobbies are knitting, collecting recipes, reading and listening to music. She lives in Staunton, Virginia with her husband, Chuck.
Her work has appeared in such publications as The Christian Herald, The Lutheran, The Lutheran woman, and similar inspirational publications.

Although she has sold two titles to the mainstream print market, one of which has been published in the UK and China as well as the US, she sees the bright future of the digital market. "Who Will Hear Them Cry" is her first digital title, it won't be the last. Look for more from this author in the near future, including other titles featuring Kate Talbot from "Who Will Hear Them Cry."

Ms. Campbell has merged the 19th and 20th century into a story that will keep you hooked from Page One! An 1830's building originally used to provide basic training for blind women is now housing an experimental project where blind men and women are transitioning from rehabilitation training to going back into the "real world." Chris, a recently blinded concert pianist, has come both to continue her adjustment to blindness as well as receive further piano instruction at the nearby university. Her resemblance to Miss Melissa, a blind woman who had fought her way to become the original school's director, wakes a malevolent spirit who wants to destroy Chris just as he had tried to destroy Miss Melissa. You will come to respect the blind people who don't let their disability stop them from waging battle against as well as for the spirits who inhabit this home. I would give this book a 5-star rating.
