In addition to novels and short stories, she has published articles on the human-animal bond and was awarded the Maxwell Medallion by the Dog Writer’s Association of America. She enjoys philosophical debates, and often asks the question we all ponder: is there a place for us beyond this life and, if so, can our dogs and cats come too? As the Crow Flies, a haunting romance with a good dose of humor and the right amount of spooky, is currently a finalist for a 2019 Golden Crown Literary Society award.

Camille Spencer grew up in Southern California during the 70s and 80s, where she spent two years as an art major in college only to switch mid-way to English Literature. She’s worked as a freelance copywriter and editor since 2001. In 2013, she began writing fiction on the side. Truth or Dare was published in 2018.
