About Marshall Campbell

Marshall Campbell - My name is Marshall Campbell. I was born in Birmingham, Alabama, and raised in Detroit Michigan. I started to draw and write at an early age. Upon entering the ninth grade in high school, I took journalism for two years. During that time I wrote a column for the school newspaper. I also joined the journalism club. We wrote short stories, poetry, and in addition; discussed and critiqued each other's work. After graduation from high school, I enlisted in the army as a paratrooper, where I spent three years, and received an honorable discharge with the rank of corporal. leaving the military, I entered college and spent two years studying drafting, because white newspapers turned me down for employment, and black newspapers positions where filled in journalism. Not being able to find a job in drafting, I finally considered auto factory work, and later was employed by the states preschool system as a teacher's assistant. Some years later I answered Gods calling on my life and entered a local seminary and studied biblical counseling for two years. Writing sermons during my studies, took me back to my first love of writing. I am presently an ordained minister, and still writing sermons, but this is my first novel.
