Goodbye and Hello

Tomorrow I will build my new website with a very talented designer. I feel like I need a moment of silence for the old site, which Elliot built for me (including the spoon header design) in 2007 and David tweaked in 2010 when he fixed me up with a new blog. Despite frustrations with Movable Type and relentless Chinese spammers, this little home on the web has served me well for six and a half years.

So what’s next? Beautiful things, unusual things, inspiring things. The new site will be like throwing a party that never ends.

Very soon, when you surf to, you will be redirected to To celebrate the new site, there will be giveaways (I’ve got copies of the Petty Magic audiobook up for grabs, plus delicious cookies or cake from The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau!) along with Q&As with some of my very favorite creative people. I don’t know if I’ve ever been quite this excited about anything, EVER!

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.
