About the Author
Camille Dumas is a woman of many names: Camille Vanessa Johnson, JC, Gabrielle Taylor, Camille Nickles, Elle, Satin and Antoinette, to list a few. Her projects include the text-based games Tesseract and Rehobaom's Legacy (hypercube.org:9000), her seminal online column Auntie Dynamite (a blog that existed two years before Blogger), investigation of the green marketplace at My Toxic Life and Clean Shopper, and writings on organics and cutting-edge tech for Shiny Media. She was editor of Hippyshopper and star writer for Shiny Shiny and Tech Digest. She was editor of Mascaret magazine for four years. Camille's grandmother Rosetta Johnson, nee Dumas, was cousin of the celebrated French writers Alexandre Dumas pere (auth. The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers) and Alexandre Dumas fils (auth. of Camille). Her son Arthur Johnson loved both writers and so named his first born daughter. Both are huge influences on Camille's work. Camille was born in Sechelt, BC, during an unusually snowy winter. She has also resided in Quesnel, BC; Sackville, NB; Ottawa, ON; Eugene, OR; Santa Barbara, CA; Albany, NY; Moncton, NB, and Toronto, ON. Though enrolled at the prestigious Mount Allison University at age 13, and further studying at Carleton University (where she studied writing with Tom Henighan) and the University of Leicester, a disabling genetic defect forced her to drop out of each. Like Edith Wharton, she writes in bed, and is working on her second book.
