Isaiah Campbell

Isaiah Campbell was born and bred in Texas, and spent his childhood reading a blend of Dickens, Dumas and Stan Lee. He dreamed his whole life of becoming a writer. And also of being bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately, only one dream has panned out. For 15 years he taught and coached students in writing and the arts before he finally took his own advice and wrote THE TROUBLES OFJOHNNY CANNON and THE STRUGGLES OF JOHNNY CANON. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, three children and his sanity, although that may be moving out soon. He occasionally searches the classifieds for the bulk sale of spiders and uranium but hasn't had any luck yet. Find him online at IsaiahCampbell.com.
