Kristy Cambron is a storyteller inspired by vintage fiction who writes her works from the space where faith, history, and art intersect.

As a teenager, she went to college where she got a Research Writing/Art History degree. She would then spend fifteen years in leadership development and education at a Fortune 100 corporation.

During this time, he partnered with companies such as Gallup, Kenexa/IBM, and the Disney Insitute before she decided to step away from it all to become a storyteller.

The author published “The Butterfly and the Violin,” her debut novel and the first of the “Hidden Masterpiece” series of novels in 2014 and has never looked back since. Kristy has now become an award-winning author of historical and inspirational fiction that has sold thousands of copies across the world.

In addition to her novels, she has also penned nonfiction works and is also a literary agent working with the Gardner Literary Agency. Her works have been featured in the likes of Publishers Weekly, Cosmopolitan, Bookbub, Book Club Girl, Faithwire, MICI Magazine, and Lifeway Women among many others.

Cambron credits her mother for fanning her love for creative storytelling. When they were kids, her mother used to take Kristy Cambron and her sister to the library every weekend during the summers.

She has said that she still has vivid memories of sitting on the floor surrounded by book aisles as she thumbed through thick volumes of art history books and Disney animation. This was the time she truly fell in love with storytelling and stories.
Nonetheless, while she has now become a bestselling author, Kristy Cambron never considered writing as a career. She always wanted to become an artist but soon realized that she was not gifted enough to draw, sculpt or paint professionally.
At that time, she believed that this was the end of her dream to become an Art professor and earn a living from art. Thankfully, she soon realized that she could paint from words and is now grateful that she still gets to live her dream, even if it is not in the exact way she dreamed about it.

Just like most authors, Kristy Cambron did not have an easy road to becoming a published author. When she decided to become a fiction author she knew nothing about the industry, the writing craft, or publishing.

She began attending conferences and her first writing conference was one organized through ACFW, where she pitched her work to six editors and agents. Within a month, she got an agent, even though she was not so sure what this meant.

What would follow was two years of crashing and burning in which she took all manner of rejections as she submitted and learned a lot about writing and publishing. Still, Kristy Cambron would not give up and ultimately published her debut novel “The Butterfly and the Violin” in 2014.

She is now a full-time author who makes her home in Indiana, where she lives with her husband and three kids. As a self-proclaimed history buff, she spends much of her time doing research on her future novels, going on back road jaunts with friends, and enjoying a good read with a peppermint mocha latte.

In “The Lost Call” by Kristy Cambron, the author explores the collision of the present and the past as she goes into a ruined French castle that has been lost for decades.

The setting is Chateau de Doux Reves, a thirteenth-century castle that has been forgotten for decades. It was left to decay in a storybook forest in the Loire Valley, one of the most picturesque places in France.

It had been sacked during the French Revolution but during the Gilded Age, it had been remodeled into a storybook chateau. But it had ultimately been abandoned in the mid-1930s following a disastrous fire.

In the present, Ellie Carver is setting beside her grandmother from whom she learns about the castle and of a secret chapel that hosted a secret fight in the French Resistance during World War II.

She loves stories about the French castle but her grandmother is fast losing the battle with Alzheimer’s and Ellie needs to act fast if she is to learn everything she desires about the history of her family.

Driven by the discovery of a family heirloom that was forgotten for years, Ellie embarks on a quest that sees her heading to the French wine country. She intends to explore the mystery of a castle named “The Sleeping Beauty” and its secrets before it is too late.

But while her heart goes out to her friend, it is in the wide open moors overlooking the Wicklow Mountains and a historic pub in Dublin that she finds hope and finally the courage to heal.
