Carol Owens Campbell

Lois Carol Owens Campbell, named after her beloved maternal grandmother "Lois Florene Scarborough Watson," was born in Columbus, Georgia and lived there until she left for college. Columbus holds a special place in her memories, however, she celebrates the Golden Isles of Georgia (St. Simons, Sea Island and Jekyll) as her "favorite home" where she visited her grandparents often.


Carol is a lover of stories, humor, precise language, dates, times, history, her family, her friends, and her pets (including her late loves named Bambi, Chief, Nicky, and Scout).


Carol attended Converse College in Spartanburg, S.C. for two years, transferred to The University of Alabama her junior year and earned her B.S. in Home Economics (Early Childhood Development) in 1972.

She enjoyed working at the University of Miami, the University of Tennessee and the University of Pennsylvania before her award-winning career with the Eastman Kodak Company as a Sales Account Executive began.

She earned her MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) from the Solstice MFA Program at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts in 2011.

Carol and her husband John Campbell met in Houston, Texas in 1978 and married in 1980. They are the proud parents of Griffin Owens Campbell. Wrigley, their pug, and Boo, their kitty, are also adored members of the family.
