An Interview with Author Camille D. Jamerson
Describe yourself for our visitors.
I have been described by my circle of friends as an elegant, classy, polished “Princess” type who is extremely gracious and compassionate….and then there is the “BUT”. When you get to know me you learn very quickly that I could very easily be packing a 9 MM or two under my flowing Vera Wang gown. I work hard to consistently be a lady in my demeanor….but I take no prisoners or apologies when it comes to changing paradigms and diminishing excuses for helping others overcome the past to live a more abundant life.
How do you find time to connect with God?
I have to be very creative. My day is always jam packed with the responsibilities of home, work, my business and my writing…not to mention church activities. But I have found that my car has become the best sanctuary EVER. It’s the one place where it’s quiet, no one is talking to me and I can really pray, worship and hear the Word uninterrupted.
Describe the importance of prayer and intercession in one’s life? Communication with God is imperative to stay in the will of God. You have to continue to nurture your relationship with Him over and above all others. He is the center. Everything else gets off kilter when you have been out of touch and can’t hear His voice. I have someone that I can consistently call on to intercede for me. Sometimes in a position of leadership you spend so much time interceding for the needs of others that you neglect yourself and then your weakness will pop up or you will just get tired. It’s important to have someone that will go to God on your behalf.
Who are your favorite authors and why?? Favorite books?
My favorite authors are Andy Andrews, Anne Lammott, John C. Maxwell, C.S. Lewis and Grace Greene. Why? In one or more of their books I have been inspired to DO something different. Their writing CHANGED something for me, even in fiction… a paradigm or perspective was given through the characters that caused me to think differently. That’s what writing should do, it should leave a mark.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
First and foremost that NOTHING you have been through has been time wasted. EVERYTHING in your life has been designed to bring you to an expected end of victory. This book looks at the fight that you are in, applies God’s wisdom and principles, gives you PRACTICAL, APPLICABLE information that you can use to start making changes. This is a book that requires WORK. If you are SERIOUS about operating like royalty from here on out, and leaving the life of the defeated behind you then start here. A Princess Cut Diamond will make you laugh, cry, think but most importantly if you do the work, it will cause you to CHANGE.
What’s next for you?
I am currently working on two series. One is called “A More Excellent Way” which features books that are designed to help you discover a better way of doing everything. The first one is about re-designing your wardrobe, and the one after that is about traveling on a budget. The 2nd series is about “The Adventures of Greater First New Rock”. It’s a fun series about the life & times of a modern day predominately African American church. I am also developing an online webseries regarding healthy eating in urban communities and preparing for several classes I am teaching, as well as workshops and keynote addresses for women’s and youth groups.
Where can visitors find you online?
I am on twitter @CDJamerson. My author page is www.cdjamerson.wordpress.com. My company is www.TheKaiserinGroup.org. Any of those avenues will lead you to me!
Can you give us one do and one don’t for those aspiring to be a writer? One don’t would be…don’t edit your book yourself. Hire a professional editor to proof your work. My very first book had many errors that I missed because I read what should have been there, versus what was actually printed. One do would be, even when you aren’t working on a book, write every day. My blog musings landed me a regular full page spread with Living Well magazine by Real Times media AND an offer to do a regular workshop. Keep your gift sharpened.
When you’re not writing, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Travel, Shop and Bowl…I don’t get to do any of them as often as I would like, but I hope to change that this year.
Name your top five favorite books of all time.
The Travelers Gift, Blue like Jazz, 360 Leader, The Chronicles of Narnia & Beach Rental.
Oprah always asks, What do you know for sure?
I know that I am saved. I know that I have loved and been loved in returned. I know that I would give my life for my children. Lastly, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that because I know God I am destined to do great exploits.
