Camille Picott is a fifth-generation Chinese American. She writes science fiction and fantasy books with Asian characters and/or Asian settings. Camille grew up reading speculative fiction stories largely devoid of Asian characters and culture. This, coupled with a passion for her heritage, is the reason she strives to bring some aspect of Eastern myth, legend, culture, and ethnicity to all of her writings.

CAMILLE'S HYBRID WEBSITE
Camille has created a hybrid website that combines the elements of a book blog and writing blog. Reading and writing are integrally intertwined in Camille's life. Melding both elements into a single website seemed only natural. Her book reviews are written from a writer's perspective, with an emphasis on elements of craft found within the books she reads. You can also find updates on her publications, as well as articles on writing and indie publishing.
HELP CAMILLE BUILD HER GOODREADS BOOKSHELF
