Living in Ogden, Utah, Stephanie Elisabeth Campbell is a budding illustrator/artist attending art school at Weber State University. As a child, she wanted to be an artist but never thought she was good enough. Later, she realized her love for books and became a published author. After developing schizophrenia and learning she is autistic from a neuropsychologist, she went through a metamorphosis, became closer to God, and began to draw. She learned her true passion was art but never lost her love of books. Now she is both artist and writer and works hard as a children’s picture book illustrator. Her goal is to have one of the picture books she illustrates on the New York Times bestsellers list.
