Book Title: Camille
Author:  Tess Oliver
Short Blurb:
At a time when society conforms to the strictest rules and most proper etiquette, sixteen year old Camille Kennecott and her guardian Dr. Bennett live a most unconventional life. They hunt werewolves.

When unwitting victim, Nathaniel Strider, wanders into one of their full moon pursuits, Camille and Dr. Bennett believe they have found a specimen for their study. Finding a scientific key to unlocking the mystery of lycanthropy would bring an end to their late night excursions. But beneath the irresistible exterior, Nathaniel is transforming into a flesh tearing monster, and as each experiment fails, Camille loses another inch of her soul to him. She knows that in a month’s time, she will be faced with the prospect of destroying the boy who owns her heart.

Camille is a 63,000 word young adult paranormal/romance set in 19th century London.

When did you know you wanted to be an author? Ever since I fell in love with Jane Austen's books. 
Why do you Indie publish? I've worked with publishers and editors under a different name and I can say that indie publishing gives you much more creative freedom and way less stress.
What inspired you to write your book? With Camille, I knew I wanted to write a romance with a Gothic feel and a 19th century London setting. That's how the story emerged. 
What are three things you want people to know about you or your book? I hope people enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
What advice do you have for parents to encourage their kids to read more? As a teacher, I get asked this question all the time. Some children take naturally to it because they love it. For others, it is not on their 'list of fun things to do'. But with the right books, anyone can become an avid reader. But they need to find the books that interest them.
