About the Author

Molly is a two-time Erma Bombeck award winning writer. She hosts her own intelligent and funny blog, www.mollydcampbell.com, as well as writing for Literati Magazine on Medium. The World Came Us, Molly’s latest novel, tells the story of Meg and Tommy Poole, mother and daughter, who decide to withdraw from the world in order to deal with their grief over the death of Sam Poole, Meg’s wife and Tommy’s other mom. Their solitude is interrupted by events that shake up their small world and help them resolve some major problems-both of their own and others. Funny and heartrending at times, it’s a story of love, coming together, and redemption. Molly's novel Crossing the Street, "Hilarious and full of familial honesty, Molly's novel is a joy to read." --Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. One eventful summer in the life of Beck Throckmorton, a burned-out writer, and her seven year old new BFF. "A gem of a novel about being open to life and its possibilities when you just don't wanna..." --Karen Karbo, Award winning author of New York Times notable book The Diamond Lane. Her first novel from The Story Plant and Fiction Studio, is "Keep the Ends Loose," a wry and witty coming of age novel. Miranda Heath is a quirky fifteen year-old with cinematic dreams and a safe, predictable family. That is, until she decides to pull at the loose end that is the estranged husband that her aunt never divorced. Warm, funny, and uniquely perceptive, "Keep the Ends Loose" is an irresistible novel filled with characters you might recognize and certainly never forget. Her short story collection began as a Twitter stream of character names that she invented in her spare time, followed by a brief description: "Loretta Squirrels beats her husband and makes moonshine." Molly then decided to write a book about her characters. She teamed up with a fantastic artist to bring them to life. The book soon became an Amazon Pop Culture best seller. Molly lives in Dayton, Ohio, the home of Erma Bombeck. Molly makes regular pilgrimages to Erma's grave--for inspiration and spiritual renewal. Molly also spends time petting her five cats and plugging her ears. Her husband plays the accordion. Molly likes cake. She doesn't get to eat it much, because she has a slight pot belly.
