Lyndsay-Jean Campbell

Writer of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, a fourth-generation New Zealander with a wonderfully mixed Celtic heritage.


Hi, I’m Lyndsay-Jean

I am excited to share my ideas and stories with you.

As well as my books, I hope you will take a moment to read some of my poems. They tend to fall out of my head when I am least expecting it, often when I am procrastinating about doing other writing. One of the best things about being a writer is belonging to a community, our tribe, mostly women, who support one another in our creative endeavours.

I am a member of the Romance Writers of NZ, The Rotorua Writer’s Group, The Mad Poets and The New Zealand Society of Authors.

I have written quite a body of poetry over the years. Poems just fall out of my head when I’m least expecting it and have just been a lovely thing to do.

However, I plan to sort them out and gather some of the best to make a collection. Hopefully they will soon be available. You will probably see some of my poems in my newsletter.
