Imminent Dawn

 The International Book Awards finalist and first installment in the EMPATHY sci-fi saga.

Mourning Dove

An evocative, sweeping symphony of love, revenge, and desperation in cacophonous times.

Accounting for It All

Campbell’s debut novel challenges prevailing narratives about sex work and pornography.

And Ampersand

A collection of short fiction that begins with endings, ends with beginnings, and elevates feel over form.


[Imminent Dawn is] an incisive techno-thriller that gets more tense with every page.



To say so much with so few words [in And Ampersand] is a gift.

– Gregory Lee Renz, Author of Beneath the Flames


…Accounting for It All is laced with cutting-edge wit and down-home charm… I’m impressed.

– laurie buchanan, author of the sean mcpherson novels
