Hi, I’m Cheyenne Campbell.
I’m a fantasy author whose work is inspired by my adventures around the Cornish coast, the Scottish Highlands, and wherever my muddy boots or flip-flops take me. I love telling stories of relatable characters in folkoric realms that are not so far away.
Born in Grand Island, New York, I’ve also lived in Tennessee, California, Canada, Cornwall, Scotland, and SW England, where I currently live with my Scottish husband. I’m a Native American (Mohawk). I’ve lived in the UK since 2008, and in 2016 I gained dual citizenship, becoming a British citizen (just in time to vote…).
Since 2008, I’ve been features editor and writer for OnScreen magazine.
I studied technical theatre at SUNY at Buffalo, music business at Belmont University, and received a 1st class Film BA from Falmouth University in Cornwall, England.
When not reading and writing, I’m rambling woods, hills, and coastal paths, listening to Radiohead or Taylor Swift, exploring cities, playing (mostly older) video games, watching films, taking photos, painting, learning guitar, playing bass, and watching and listening to puffins, herons, and black-capped chickadees.
I love all things Tolkien, believe most situations call for a Withnail & I quote, and am obsessed with old Top Gear (Clarkson, Hammond, and May). I’m also a lifelong devotee of Tim Horton’s Timbits and coffee.
Last but not least, I’m here in this life, doing what I get to do with all thankfulness to and because of my savior, Jesus.
“If a person is ever going to do anything worthwhile, there will be times when he must risk everything by his leap in the dark.”
