Phyllis Staton Campbell of Staunton, VA, has turned her blindness into an asset, as she releases "Where Sheep May Safely Graze," fiction, Westbow Press.

"Where Sheep May Safely Graze" tells the story of Jim, blinded while serving as chaplain in Iraq, and his wife, Amy. The reader follows the young couple as they meet the challenge of a new marriage, a new church in a rural area, vastly different from the prestigious city church where they served before Jim's blindness, and Jim's wealthy interfering mother.

Campbell, who was born blind, says she wants her readers to view the blind as normal people, who see the world through touch, smell and sound, not as superbeings, nor sad creatures, to be pitied. If you're looking for either of these, don't read this book! Pastor Jim and Amy make mistakes, they know sorrow and joy; they meet their challenges with humor, love for each other, and a deep abiding faith in God. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll find inspiration. This is simply a good read for all ages. Readers of The Mitford books by Jan Karon, will find Where Sheep May Safely Graze of special interest.

In creating her blind characters, Phyllis Staton Campbell calls on her own experience as a woman who is blind and that of others. She has worked as teacher of the blind, computer tutor, youth transition specialist and organist.

She lives in Staunton, Virginia, where she serves as organist at historic Faith Lutheran Church, not far from the home she shared with her husband Chuck, who waits on the other side of that door we call death.

Where Sheep May Safely graze is available in softcover, hardcover, and as an ebook.
