Welcome to Art ~ Writing ~ Life.

My name is Steve Campbell. I am a semi-retired wildlife and landscape artist, cartoonist, poet, and independent author of fantasy fiction. I created this blog for readers and patrons to learn more about me.

Along the way, I brought aboard a fellow writer and artist. We met years ago when I was her teacher and she was my student.

Lola Gentry-Dey pens mostly free verse poetry and bits of short-story fiction. She also draws and paints in her spare time. She lives on a horse ranch near Lake Erie Beach, New York with her physician husband and their three children. You can learn more about her at Lola.

Adding more interest to this blog, I invited members of the Writer’s Block writing group in Corry, Pennsylvania to participate.

logoI joined the Writer’s Block group in 2002 and was elected to maintain our website. The group soon elected me president—a position I held for nine years. We wrote poetry, news articles, historical documentaries, fiction in every imaginable genre and studied all its facets.

This blog is all about our Art, Photography, Fiction, Poetry, and sometimes Commentary about our lives.  Honest.  True story.

    1. Thank you and ditto on your blog. I just returned from it and loved the art and science. Good luck on the publication of your book. I like the covers your friend did, very impressive, and I’m looking forward to reading it.


    1. I’m glad you found my blog and enjoyed your visit, Prasad. In fact, I’m always excited to know that someone wants to stick around and see and read more of what I post. A friend calls it, “The warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that someone appreciates what we do.” Or, as you rightly call it at your blog: the footprints we leave behind. 🙂


  1. I love your art. Solid work. I have all your books on my tablet now. Even though your Vree Erickson stories are YA 13+, I find them perfect for those of us at a higher age level. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks for those kind words. I hope others are getting as much enjoyment out of my books as you are.


    1. I do not know why. The only time I had problems visiting WordPress pages was when I had Adblock Plus enabled. Once I turned it off for WordPress, I had no more problems.

      If you continue to have problems visiting my blog, Harry, please let WordPress know. https://en.support.wordpress.com/
