The author’s passion for writing started as a teen. Her first attempt was a short story about the Beatles. The manuscript was typed on a manual typewriter and bound with red ribbons. In 2018, Ms. Campbell-Green wrote an unpublished family genealogy of the Campbell family. A memoir about the family patriarch, Jack Caleca, MD, was next. Part World War II history and part personal memoir, On Being Great Again includes many original photographs. Later, the author studied her family’s history during the American Gilded Age. This Was Their Time is historical fiction and social history generously footnoted with a few family photographs.
