Out to Lunch

Yup. Still here. Good things are happening, and one not-good thing happened, but I can’t talk (or don’t feel like talking) about any of it just yet. Let’s say I’m doing everything I can right now to meet fate halfway.


I’ve been writing and revising and researching, plus sorting through my master note pile–some of these bits of paper go back to my NYU days. (Notice that quote from The Summer of ’42. Every time I read it I think of the GOP.)


I think this bookmark is from 2001. (I may have been reading Woman: An Intimate Geography. Natalie Angier has the most formidable vocabulary I have ever encountered.)

I’ve got to get my blogging mojo back, because my Q&A with Adam McOmber and The White Forest giveaway goes up on Tuesday bright and early. I’m so, so excited for that! In the meantime, read this lovely profile in the Chicago Sun-Times, and check out my endorsement:


It’s such an honor to have my name on the back cover of this marvelous novel. Until Tuesday!

    That’s awesome that people think your praise means something (I mean that in a good way)! And what beautifully written praise it is 🙂

    I love it seeing your scribbles. I read the story behind his wanting to work with his editor because you worked with her too. That was just awesome.
    I treasure the little scribbles you wrote on my piece during our workshop. I am sure Adam is loving that gave such praise.

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.
