At the age of 12, Camille Di Maio decided that it was her life’s goal to write a novel, so she wrote a letter to her future self to make sure she’d gotten it done. Nearly three decades later, the dream has come true. When she’s not ignoring her responsibilities in favor of reading a page-turner, she wears many other hats. Together with her husband, she homeschools their four children, runs one of the most successful real estate teams in San Antonio, spends too much time at farmer’s markets, and is training to be a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
Camille regularly faces her fear of flying to indulge her passion for travel. Favorite experiences include: visiting King Tut’s tomb in Egypt, spending the night in the church of Sacre Coeur in Paris, exploring lava caves in Maui, watching glaciers calve in Alaska, sailing the Bosphorus River in Istanbul, posing with wax statues of The Beatles in London, and meeting Pope John Paul II (Rome) and Mother Teresa (Denver). She is inspired by the concept of “sucking the marrow out of life”.
Camille believes that there is always room to squeeze one more bookshelf in to her house, and add one more item to her bucket list. She figures that she’ll have to live to at least 150 to make it all happen.
