"Stories frame our 

existence. They tie us to 

our ancestors and to one 

another. They help us find 

our place in this world."               

 ~Darlene Franklin-Campbell


Sandra Kring (Random House author of Book of Bright Ideas, Carry Me Home, How High the Moon) says, of Campbell's work: 

"This is Southern fiction as its finest."


 Jay Parini,(The Art of Subtraction: New and Selected Poems, The Last Station, and Robert Frost: A Life.) describes Campbell's poetry, 

"This is a poet with a deep sense of not only nature but spirit....she brings rich native tradition into play here, in language that is strict and pure...I hear a profound religious note in these poems that moves beyond dogma into a kind of universal religion, with religion as a kind of re-legio, in the root sense of that word: a linking back to an earlier time, a world of pure nature...this poet understands the relationship -- almost an occult relationship -- between word and thing. The poetry rises to a high level, and this level is sustained through the collection."
