Staunton, Virginia – January 6, 2020 – “Losing eyesight doesn’t mean losing vision,” is the quote “Where Sheep May Safely Graze” epitomizes. Written by Phyllis Staton Campbell, the book recounts the tale of a pastor rendered blind in Iraq and how he overcomes the consequences, including losing his job. The pastor and his wife go on to make a life for themselves in the backwater, make new friends, and help animals and people alike.
The author has devoted her writing life to give the sighted world a glimpse of the world of the blind, especially those who have recently lost their sight, or who are facing blindness. Three of Phyllis Campbell’s books, including “Where Sheep May Safely Graze” had been chosen by the Library of Congress (National Library Service for the Blind) as part of its Talking Book and Braille program for the blind and physically handicapped.
The creation of characters in “Where Sheep May Safely Graze,” was based on the author’s experience as a teacher of the blind, peer counselor, and youth transition coordinator. She says that she lives, the lives of her characters: lives of sorrow and joy; triumph and failure; hope and despair.
Phyllis considers being a Visually Impaired Person (VIP), not a disadvantage. “I feel that in some ways, my blindness has been an asset to me in my journey as a writer. Through necessity, the blind must hone the power of observation, which is invaluable for a writer. My blind characters are outstanding because they are different and that intrigues the reader,” Phyllis Campbell shares.
“Where Sheep May Safely Graze” was featured in the most prominent book events in North America, BookExpo America and BookCon 2018 on May 31-Jun 3,2018 at Javits Center, NY. She is currently at work on “Goin’ Home” a sequel to “Where Sheep May Safely Graze.”
With her latest book, Phyllis Campbell has proven yet again that blindness is not a handicap that stops anyone from doing what the heart desire.
