Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband on an adventure abroad.
She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.

Sometimes I make myself laugh. When I come up with a good joke or a great line… that makes my day.
Sometimes I make myself cry. When I find myself sniffling over a passage that I wrote I feel silly at first, then very silly, and finally extremely satisfied.
My greatest hope is to bring those same emotions to my readers…(less)

Hi Maddie,
thank you for the question. I’ve already planned one. The fourth book in the First Comes Love series will have as protagonist Lana, she’ll be a rocket science teacher and a tought nut to crack... so far it’s only an idea inside my head but I’ve already chosen the names of her cats: Cengel and Boyle (inside joke if you did mechanical like me, what engineering did you study?) Hopefully the book will be out in 2019... and for my next New Adult series I plan to do a whole series of mismatched engineering vs business school types falling in love, but that will be an even longer time in the making :)(less)

Hi,

I know you've probably just finished carving your pumpkins and want to enjoy the Halloween vibe a little longer, me too. I constantly shuffle channels to find that Hocus Pocus re-run, you? But Christmas is just around the corner and I'm so excited because this year I'm publishing my very first Christmas story: A Christmas Date.

The book comes out today and can be read as a standalone, however... Read more of this blog post »

I can only describe this book as the smell of freshly baked bread coming out of the oven in winter: warm and delicious.

How I adored this book!

Initially, I thought it was going to be a love-hate romantic comedy, but after a while it became clear it was only a case of a grumpy, and not very socially skilled leading man: Dr. Samuel Page, the hottest historian you'll ev
