In 1997, Carol Joan Campbell wrote songs for a Children’s CD, “Why Knot Play By the Rules”, teaching safety rules via music. “You Don’t Have Fins” won fourth place in John Lennon’s international song writers competition. In 2006 her book “Verses From A Garden, and Other Nature Things,” viewed nature through children’s eyes. In 2010, she wrote “Between Webster and Me.” Going through the dictionary, she chose words from A through Z and crafted stories expressing the different facets of each word and its range of definitions and usages. “The Devil On My Doorstep” written by she and her daughter, depicting two sides of a mental breakdown, was published in 2010. She has had many short stories published in a local magazine. Her last book on the market was “Death Speaks”, a suspense murder novel. Now a sampling of many more of my stories and poetry, hopefully for everyone to enjoy.
