"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Mary Modern now out in paperback!

5.1875 x 8 (.75 spine)I almost wet myself with excitement the day my editor emailed me the new paperback cover. Isn’t it incredible? The über-talented Dan Rembert designed both covers, but he really outdid himself with the re-design. You can’t see it too well in the jpeg, but those faint horizontal lines are DNA code. Captures the quirky spirit of the book just perfectly.

At the back of the book you’ll find a reading group guide as well as an author essay written especially for the paperback edition. I wrote about how my great-grandparents’ engagement portrait sparked the idea.

Hard to believe it’s been a year since the novel came out. I’m trying not to think about how well the paperback will end up selling, and actually, it isn’t all that hard when my head is so full of plot lines and bits of dialogue from Petty Magic

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
