Annie Campbell is a pen name, I am not sure why I felt unable to put my own name to my work, part of it goes back to old personal issues. Now that I have completed my fifth book, I have greater belief in my work and my worth, but back when I first began the publishing process for Tomorrow Begins Today, I felt a little insecure. Also, because the main character I had created, Lou, was semi autobiographical, I wasn't at that time ready to own certain aspects of our similarities. Now, not only can I publicly own my historic over reliance on alcohol, but I am proud of my recovery and achievements in sobriety. I shy from calling myself an alcoholic, not because I am concerned about any stigma, but because having spent 3.5 years with others in recovery, I genuinely do not believe I fall into that category. Regardless of title, I had an unhealthy relationship with the bottle for 30 odd years and am happily, healthily sober nowadays.
I live on the East Coast of Scotland with my tolerant husband and my impatient Labradoodle Molly. I work part time, which is necessary as I have an insular personality and writing is an isolating profession. If I didn't have to go to work, I would probably rarely leave the house or speak to others.
