Cammie McGovern
Autism Expert and Award-winning Author
Biography Press
Cammie McGovern's second novel, Eye Contact, is a riveting, literary mystery about a nine-year-old autistic boy who witnesses a murder. In this poignant and suspenseful book, Cammie brings her own experience as the mother of an autistic child to articulate the struggles-and the victories-that consume the lives of parents raising children with special needs.
Cammie has written extensively about parenting a child with autism and the issues facing families coping with this epidemic disorder in The New York Times, Good Housekeeping, Reader's Digest, The London Sunday Times, and others. She is also a co-founder of Whole Children, a pioneering center in Western Massachusetts established by a group of mothers of children with special needs to run after-school classes and recreation programs for children of all abilities. In the three years since its inception they have served over four hundred families and become a model for other centers around the country.
Cammie is also the author of Seeing, was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, and received the Nelson Algren Award in short fiction. Her work has been published in Redbook, Seventeen, Glimmer Train, TriQuarterly, and other publications.
She lives with her husband and three children, the oldest of whom is autistic, in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Neighborhood Watch, Cammie McGovern
This week I decided to reread a couple older books along with my pop culture book pick of the moment, Neighborhood Watch by Cammie McGovern.
And from there the author, Cammie McGovern spins the tale of the unfortunate Betsy Treading, who, after spending twelve years in prison for a crime she didn't commit, is released when new evidence comes to light. She must go back to her old neighborhood to try to put the pieces from her lost memory together and begin to solve the murder of her neighbor, meet the people who turned their backs on her and allowed her to confess to a crime she didn't commit. Betsy walks in her sleep. Her fingerprints are all over the crime scene; there is blood on her nightgown, and Betsy starts to believe she must've committed murder while wandering one night. I love books that portray what lies beneath the perfect surface of a community, show that the nice neighbors may be hiding secrets that would startle everyone if revealed. Why would a woman confess to a crime, serve time in prison, and then begin to believe she is truly innocent? Implausible as this situation sounds, the author made me believe it really happened, and you will follow along to see how she did just that and wonder at the intricate relationships of the people who attend the neighborhood watch meetings.
Cammie McGovern was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University and has received numerous prizes for her short fiction. She is also the author of the 2006 novel, Eye Contact and The Art of Seeing. Her books are available in trade paperback or eBook.
