About Camille

I have always loved making up stories and pretending. I have been secretly writing books since I was in the 4th grade at Pease Elementary School. When I’m not herding my seven dogs or running around town (literally, especially if there’s a fun run to train for), I work as an elementary art teacher who tries not to be a helicopter mom. I live in Fredericksburg, Texas with my two teenage daughters Riley and Sydney.

 I believe that picture books can be magic. A child can lose themselves in another world even if they can’t read a word, and a grown-up can be transported back in time by the simplicity of sharing a book with a child. My hope is to be a part of that magic.

I love working with my daughter Riley, and having the chance to help give her talent some wings.

And, yes, we really do have seven dogs.
