Camille has published short stories, nonfiction essays, and novels.



Sophie Nouveau ventures to faraway Malaysia to seek answers about why her true love, Taj, broke up with her and returned to his homeland. When she gets there, she realizes something has been haunting Taj’s kid brother. But is it mental illness or black magic?

While Sophie’s a world away, a customer claims she is poisoned by a potion from Seraphina’s House of Voodoo. As a result, the FDA shuts down Sophie’s shop pending an investigation into the incident. So she rushes back to New Orleans only to realize a traitor is at the root of all this bad mojo. That person, who’s in cahoots with Dr. Bones, wants to usurp the title of Voodoo Queen from the Papillon family line forever.

EMERGENCE copy_505x825 (1)_edited.jpg


Voodoo shop owner Sophie Nouveau has it all: love, purpose, and the magical ability to change evil people good. Following in her family’s otherworldly footsteps, she emerges into the New Orleans voodoo community by taking part in a public voodoo baptism. However, she still hasn’t told Taj, the love of her life, about the paranormal skeletons in her closet. So when he leaves the country indefinitely and without explanation, she realizes they are both masters at keeping secrets. And since true love is the source of Sophie’s Mind Changer spell, she not only loses her soul mate, she loses her ability to protect herself and her city against an emerging threat.

  • "OMG, these books are so amazing. Been to New Orleans twice, such an intriguing and interesting place. Decided to take up reading while camping, couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the sequel." --From fan, Linda

  • “She did it again!!! I was in bed exhausted at 3 AM, eyes burning with tears rolling out, but I could not put this book down! It kept me at the edge of my seat, psychological thriller should be added to the description. There were so many unexpected & exciting twists & turns. I especially love the character development. If you haven’t read Voodoo Butterfly this is still a good stand alone book, but it’s so much better if you do read it first. I hope this author adds a new series about Yolanda & Margaret, and another about Jacques. They were so much fun to get to know. There were some new characters introduced and they are as equally entertaining. I am dying to find out what happens next, spoiler alert - there is a cliffhanger.” --From fan, Dawn
