About

Steven Leo Campbell is an award-winning wildlife and landscape artist who writes fantasy and supernatural fiction in his spare time. He lives in Corry, Pennsylvania with his wife Jennie and their Chin-wa dog Tuffy. ย 

I have been a writer and artist for as long as I can remember. I have a BA degree in studio art/graphic design; I graduated from college magna cum laude. I have been a wildlife artist for 30+ years, an indie author longer, and an avid reader of all genres of fiction since the age of 5.

My passion for writing stories began in 1970, but it took a backseat after 1980 while I painted art for a living. I became passionate about writing again in 1999, returning to pen fantasy and paranormal fiction, which I self-published. I still self-publish. And I respect authors who do the same, who study long the craft and hone their skills, and overcome the stigma brought about by the hangers-on of an ancient and dying culture.

As I mentioned, I enjoy writing fantasy/paranormal stories, which I often set in and around a fictional town called Ridgewood, a place I created on paper when I was a teen writer. My fictional Pennsylvania town is based on my own hometown where my relatives fueled my imagination with their ghost stories and urban lore, prompting me to write my own tales for everyone in love with the fantasy/paranormal genre to enjoy.

You can find my ebooks at Amazon.com and at Smashwords.com. I also post stories at Wattpad.com, and at my website here.

    1. I’m glad you found my blog and enjoyed your visit, Prasad. In fact, I’m always excited to know that someone wants to stick around and see and read more of what I post. A friend calls it, โ€œThe warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that someone appreciates what we do.โ€ Or, as you rightly call it at your blog: the footprints we leave behind. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love your art. Solid work. I have all your books on my tablet now. Even though your Vree Erickson stories are YA 13+, I find them perfect for those of us at a higher age level. Keep up the great work!

  3. Thank you for following my new blog! (Actually, it’s my original one from years ago – 2009? – but stripped clean for a do-over. I never deleted it.) More of my poems are in the works – new and old!

        1. Thanks, Lola. It’s been a while since anyone nominated this site for an award. Glad to know I still have some faithful followers who read my posts. I may participate in the nomination once my busy schedule is less busy. Have a wonderful day, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
