Malcolm R. Campbell. . .
The stars and spirits have been kind to me, for I’ve been in the right place at the right time to produce multiple kinds of written materials. Or, the truth be told, I think that a good liberal arts education had a lot to do with it, because it allowed me to adapt–like a chameleon–to different writing needs and styles.
When I worked in the corporate world, the term “agile” was in vogue. When a company was agile, it could quickly adapt to changing conditions, new technologies, changes from its major competitors, and the consumers’ ever-changing desires for new products and features. It helps a writer to be able to do that as well. In trying to adapt, I’ve produced:
- News stories and news features.
- Magazine features and reviews.
- Nonprofit and for-profit news releases.
- Successful National Register of historic places application, state and federal grants.
- Computer documentation and help files.
- And occasionally a little poetry.
My fiction includes:
- Contemporary fantasy: (The Sun Singer and Sarabande).
- Realism with a touch of magic: (At Sea and Mountain Song).
- Magical Realism: Conjure Woman’s Cat, Eulalie and Washerwoman, Lena, and Fate’s Arrows.
- Satire/Mystery: Special Investigative Reporter.
I grew up in the Florida Panhandle and now live in north Georgia.
