Janine De Tillio Cammarata has always loved tales of dragons and time travel. When her children were younger, she often made up her own stories as she rocked them to sleep. She is the award-winning author of six books ranging from middle grade and young adult fantasy to non-fiction. Janine teaches creative fiction and journal writing workshops to all ages from elementary school, middle grade, high school, to adults. She is a graduate of the College of Saint Rose (’88, ’93) in English Literature with a concentration in Medieval Literature. When she isn’t writing or teaching, she is walking her dogs, riding her motorcycle, practicing yoga, and helping children battle cancer through her foundation, Nick’s Fight to be Healed. She and her family live in upstate New York with their two rescue dogs, Zoey Shadow and Dakota Kenny.
