Essex Lifestyle share the talents of three Essex writers

Despite having to care for and homeschool her severely disabled son and support her husband through triple bypass heart surgery and two heart attacks, AJ Campbell published her debut novel Leave Well Alone which became an Amazon best seller. She is launching her second novel Don’t Come Looking on April 17th.


An alumna of the Faber Academy, she writes in the psychological and mystery genres. Her latest book Don’t Come Looking, although a standalone story, is a sequel to her debut novel and was released in April.

AJ draws inspiration for her writing from many facets of everyday life. The human mind and how different people react to each other and interact in society fascinates her. She loves settling down with a good book and enjoys thought-provoking stories that beg the question – what would I have done in that situation?

AJ lives on the Essex / Hertfordshire border with her husband, sons, and cocker spaniel, Max. She is a firm believer in daily exercise for mental health and enjoys walking Max in the local fields to boost her creativity. AJ also loves cooking oriental food while sipping a good glass of white wine.
