Camile Araujo is a 38 year old writer who lives in Florida with her 3 year old daughter. In 2006, she sustained her spinal cord injury and after two long years of dealing with life-threatening complications from the car accident, she turned to her writing to heal from the inside out. Her unique perspective on the world has assisted her to beat the odds of living a sub-par life. Even when she is forced to deal with an Armageddon of emotions that still taunt her from that event, she turns that experience into a way of informing others that it is okay to be exactly where they are at in their own journeys of recovery and healing through her writing. Camile has been published in the United States and abroad (Australia, UK, New Zealand and Canada).
