Cameron D. Garriepy


Self-described shenaniganist and unabashed romantic, Cameron wrote her first romance novel on an antique typewriter, using a stack of pink paper. Detours between that draft and publishing her first novel included a BA in Music, a professional culinary education, and twelve years in the child-wrangling industry.

Cameron writes from the Metro Boston area, where she lives with my husband, son, and a poorly behaved pug. Her fiction is independently published through most major ebook retailers by Bannerwing Books. Her writing has appeared on Livestrong, The Bump, ModernMom, and GlobalPost. Cameron was a managing editor at Write on Edge, and is the founder and senior editor at Bannerwing Books.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is a butcher block inset in the corner of my kitchen. I have a black wooden saddle-stool that's often co-opted by my son. In an ideal world, the large monitor and full-size keyboard are waiting there for me to plug into my Macbook and write, but more often than not, the space is crammed with papers from Kindergarten, bills, the detritus of family life... I tend to grab my laptop and curl up on the couch.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I'm from central Massachusetts, and my family has deep roots in upstate New York and Vermont. I've traveled some {never enough!], but I've always lived in this part of the country. The Northeast, with it's changing seasons, shore, forests, mountains, it's in my blood. I set a lot of my stories here in New England because there's so much of my heart here, and so much rich history to draw on.

Smashwords book reviews by Cameron D. Garriepy

  • Solstice on Sep. 24, 2011

    A sensuous, sweet romance with likable, relatable characters.
  • Unholy Cow on Oct. 07, 2011

    This is a tenderly bizarre (or bizarrely tender?) and VERY EVIL story. So EVIL, in fact, that I suggest you never, ever download it. Hey! I said, "Never, ever!" Don't you... Fine. Download it. But you'd better not grin once while you read it. And don't say I didn't warn you.
  • Unseen on May 13, 2012

    Danaƫ longs for normalcy, even as she passes through the world, cursed to be unseen and untouched by the living, cursed to be a last vision for the dying. An angel of mercy. When Christian reaches out to her in a Texan honky-tonk, she wonders if there is hope, and finds only terror. Ms. Murakami's ability to write the horrific with startling beauty leaves me breathless. She is both a wordsmith and a storyteller. Her characters move and breathe in their space: Danaƫ is tender, deflecting pity with wry humor, and marvelously passionate at the crisis point, and Christian embodies the frighteningly mundane face of evil. I had to force myself to slow down, to read this story with the care it deserves, even while the narrative pushed me to devour it.
