She was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, but eventually the family ended up in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. She graduated from the University of Scranton in 1982.

Three years later, in 1992, Campbell Bartoletti published her first picture book, Silver at Night. She held a rigid routine, awaking early in the morning in order to write before she left to teach.
