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 else I’m fortunate enough to explore. I love telling stories of relatable characters in folkoric and fantastic 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.
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 old-school) video games, watching films, taking photos, painting, playing guitar or 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, an
d 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 living 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.”
