Camilla Way (born 1973 in Greenwich, London) is an English author and was previously an editor at men's style magazine Arena since 2005[1]. Her first book, The Dead of Summer, was published in 2007.

Camilla Way is the daughter of poet and author Peter Way. She was educated at Woolwich College and the University of Glamorgan and was formerly associate editor of teenage girls' magazine Bliss.[2]

The Dead of Summer was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger Award 2007.[3] It is set in the long, hot summer of 1986 in Greenwich, London, and culminates in the murder of three teenage children as told seven years later to a police psychologist by Anita, sole witness to the crime.[4]

Her second novel is titled Little Bird. The story is about the character Kate who never speaks about the past. She glances nervously over her shoulder as if she were being followed. If you paid attention, you might hear how carefully she speaks. And if you were to search you might find the old newspaper clippings she has hidden away: Kidnap Girl "Like Wild Animal", The Mysterious Disappearance of "Little Bird" But these are just fragments of a long buried past-another life, another girl. Secrets left unspoken, until now.... The story is based on a child was kidnapped as a baby and has lived a life of isolation. The book shows the development feral children have to make after their capture and it shows how this person in particular grew and matured into an adult. The story is set in many settings from France to America to England. Little Bird received good recommendations from the magazines Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire who said 'Little Bird' was "Hauntingly beautiful and emotionally truthful" and "Brilliantly executed-it's simply impossible to put down".
