Jennifer Camiccia has lived in the wilds of Los Angeles, where she fell in love with all things Disney; and Iran, where she developed a fear of camels and a fondness for pistachios. She grew up in Hawaii where her imagination was cultivated by the wonderful teachers at Kilauea school on the island of Kauai. The rich storytelling of Hawaii—with its legends, songs, and hula dancing—all helped shape her as a writer. Paddling canoe, gymnastics, riding horses, attempting to play tennis and failing miserably, are all things she enjoyed growing up on the north shore. She now lives in the San Francisco Bay area where she still enjoys salt-kissed air and the rich storytelling of a city teeming with talented artists.
Her debut Middle-grade, The Memory Keeper released October 15, 2019 and is available for purchase.
