This space was for legal/who-does-what stuff, but then the awesome About pages of other bloggers inspired me. I’ve added more information for those of you curious enough to click here.
So, about Jadi Campbell: I live in the place between cultures.
I grew up in little New England/upstate NY villages, spent summers in a cabin in the woods, and attended a state university on the West coast. I decided at the age of 6 to be a writer, and earned a B.A. in English Literature. I worked in corporate America until I changed tracks and became a Licensed Massage Therapist. I’ve lived in Europe for almost 30 years and am proof that anyone can learn a foreign language as an adult. I published my first book Broken In: A Novel in Stories in 2012. My second novel Tsunami Cowboys followed in December 2014. Grounded appeared in May 2016. In August 2020 I published my first collection of short stories, The Trail Back Out.
Sometime during the writing of the first three books I served as President of The Writers in Stuttgart. It was a fascinating job, akin to herding cats….
The following are not contradictory statements. I am American to my bones. My sensibilities are European. My husband and I travel as much as we possibly can. I want to be a citizen of the world, which brings us back to my opening statement: I live in the place between cultures.
It may not always be easy, but it’s always interesting. It stretches my concepts of what life contains. And it gives me lots to blog about, as you’ll see on the What’s Here page.
