My Bio
Noelle confesses she was a 'tomboy that loved pink frilly things,' and claims to have always been 'a good Mormon girl.' She wrote for Space.com's entertainment section in the 90's and with her experience there, developed a deep interest in Mars and the idea of terraforming the red planet. This interest is reflected in a series of short stories about Mars available on Kindle ebook. Married to a deaf-blind craftsman, Noelle now incorporates much of her knowledge of ASL, Deaf Culture and the many experiences she has had into her writing as can be seen in her Superstition series. Currently studying to be a Master Gardener in Harris County, Texas, she has turned this knowledge into an article on Provident Living/Container Gardening for Ensign Magazine in March 2011. She thinks the world is full of magic, and her writing likes to reflect it in positive, uplifting stories she calls 'modern mythology.'

Romance Novels

(cross posted at www.noellecampbell.com) Here is what I don't get: People will mock and ridicule women for reading romance novels and lets face it, a man would be run out of town for admitting to reading romance. I myself have been guilty of this. I don't think I read any Romance regularly until I was introduced to Julia Quinn. If I agree that some romance is pretty shallow, most are somewhat formulaic, there is a huge and obvious double standard going on among literature critics that I can point out very easily with one genre and one name: Fantasy Fiction/George RR Martin. If you think the formula of a romance novel is bad, you should be g
