Hi, I’m Tim Campbell. I've heard it said that “true writers” constantly create stories about the strangers around them. Well, if that’s all it takes, I’ve made the cut. I certainly love people watching and I manufacture backgrounds and stories about them as well.
I have an AS, a BA and an MS. I’m proud to be a US Navy Submarine veteran. Just to offset that time below the surface, I’ve also flown small aircraft from the control seat. What a rush! I've done all kinds of work: sales, broadcasting, publishing, teaching, and for two decades I was a chief financial officer in the health care industry. But my greatest professional pleasure comes from writing. I’ve been published in magazines and newspapers since the first time in 1976, but my passion is writing novels (which then become screenplays). In addition to All's Fair, (2003) and What Goes Around, (2011), there are no less than forty-nine (yep, I know that’s crazy, but still … ) manuscripts in various stages of "construction" to follow those. Oh, and I also love to read and review.
That’s working, in the living part of life, my greatest pleasure comes in two outstanding adult children, a son and a daughter, who were born to us and one daughter in law who chose us, along with at least twenty or more “adopted kids” who also call me Papa.
Just to avoid wasting any time, in addition to writing, I work with several friends and we are currently developing two publishing/printing imprints, a sound and art studio as well as an online bookseller. Soon … very soon we are going to have blogs on our retail site that will interview authors, review books and movies and, who knows what might follow. So, as I learned to say in the broadcasting days … “Stay Tuned!”
