I am an author, writer, blogger, and mom to two kids. I am a passionate book reader and passionate about supporting fellow authors. Which is why I created Meeting the Authors.

Welcome! If you like my content on Meeting the Authors or the websites listed below, please consider buying me a coffee. I'm a single mom to my two kiddos and have been for the past 12 years. So, I deeply thank you for your support!

My current Work in Progress is my second book and fourth to be self-published (two of the books I wrote and published with my kids). The latest book is titled, "Words of Alchemy" and I am looking at a fall 2019 publishing date. 


Additionally, I can be found at CamillaDowns.com, where I post Soul Writings, and TheTeamTLC.com, which is a digital journal for our family. 

I love taking nature photographs and post the photos, bookish posts, and poetry at instagram.com/CamillaDowns

Very much appreciate you taking the time to learn more about me!

Coming November 2019 ... Available for pre-order now ... Thank you for your support! 😍 camilladowns.com/books/words-of-alchemy/ In Words of Alchemy, Camilla Downs invites you to walk with her to share her love of Nature and Life through a free-verse poetry memoir.   During her daily strolls she is mindfully present as she delves into life in the raw and experiences her heart’s observations.   Camilla embraces what happens when she opens her heart and invites the written words to flow. The Alchemy of Love and Healing is what happens.    Praise for Words of Alchemy   “Words of Alchemy, a heartfelt new collection by Camilla Downs, lives up to its namesake in numerous ways. Downs spans the broad range of nature, healing, love, and parenting, while making sure we have a little fun along the way. And the bridge she creates from the mindfulness of how we see the world at large to the poetry of everyday life is certainly worth a stroll or two across its borders.” - Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Award-winning author of Painted Oxen “This poetry collection offers contemplative words, soothing thoughts and peace to the reader.” - Sue Bentley, Bestselling author of Second Skin “Camilla Downs shares truth, vulnerability and wisdom in her Words of Alchemy collection, inviting readers to be inspired, contemplate and dive into her world of self-awareness and growth.” - G. Brian Benson – Award-winning author, actor and spoken word artist  “These poems take you on a calm and loving walk through the verses of the author’s thoughts. Alchemy is a perfect word for the title as Camilla Downs understands nature; connecting with its magical, medicinal qualities and beauty which she conveys throughout her poetry.” - Ailsa Craig, Author of The Sand Between My Toes “Words of Alchemy is a chronicle of hope. This poetry is an encouragement, especially when we are feeling at our lowest, to keep seeking the light that is our way forward, and focus on the real. This collection is a walk through the positive nature of life. Camilla Downs is to be commended.” - Frank Prem, Author of free-verse memoir Small Town Kid
