About the Author

Màiri Campbell was born in Wichita, Kansas, the youngest of four children and the only female. She has always been a voracious reader if you ask who her favorite author is she will stumble on who to list first.

She wrote her first poem at age 10 for a competition for the local bookmobile. Her poem was one of those chosen and published in the bookmobiles newsletter, she was hooked. She has had a few other poems published over the years but has started getting into writing short stories and novels. Currently she is working on two different novels and a few more short stories. Her first published story on Amazon is titled 'Life Begins Anew'.

She is married to her best friend, loves dogs, wolves, Scotland and anything Celtic. Màiri is currently the Vice President and League Historian for the Skagit Valley Writers League. She is an active member in her local community with the Celtic Arts Foundation. She and her husband, Robert, are the state commissioners for her husband's Scottish clan and they are at almost every Scottish Highland Games event there is in WA.


I have had a few people ask me what Seanachaidh (Shan-ah-kee) means. It is a Scottish Gaelic word for Storyteller. They are a bard among the Highlanders of Scotland, can be found in Ireland too, that preserved and repeated the traditions of the clans. The stories would be told in a particular fashion so as to maintain the histories, they would verbally document events that occurred. Theirs is a precise oral tradition and it was important to maintain the pure form of the story for passing it on to others to continue the tradition. There are still many that do this though most of us have gone to the written format of passing on the stories and histories.

I use the term is show my connection to my Scottish heritage and in honour of the memories of those that would travel the highlands of Scotland telling their tales.
