What reviewers on goodreads thought -

"she started to touch the hearts of the readers not just by emphasizing the importance of connection but to the extent of narrating one of the powerful things a human can have, its control to its own thoughts, its freedom to be what it wants to be in this life...& The way the author combined different elements like imagery, alliteration, and such things that produces the harmony in words makes it a masterpiece."

Jewel Vanilli

"The story teller can hide behind their story; a bad writer can get away with it if the story is great. But a poem? It has to speak volumes in usually less words than a short story, sometimes only a few lines. It has to have rhythm, music. The poet's language has to be broad so that there little repetition. The poet has to be seen to be in control. Camille Barr with her collection 'Behind The Facade' succeeds on all these counts...Poets would appreciate this work, non poets could learn how to appreciate poetry from this work."

“When we think of poetry, we usually think of romance. We think of the thought provoking messages it’s endeavoring to communicate to our hearts and minds. When we look at a building all we can see is its outside, its faÇade, hiding all of the complexities which are lurking behind it. What the author, Camille Barr, I feel has attempted to do in this book of poetry is give us a combination of these two…she gets her readers to use their minds and realize those wonder thought-provoking messages her poetry contains, which is why I’ve given Behind The Facade 5 STARS.” Robin Leigh Morgan, Author “I Kissed a Ghost

About the Author

Camille Barr is an Australian poet, who grew up in Byron Bay. She now lives in Torquay (Victoria, Australia) with her husband and four children. She has a love and respect for the natural environment that inspires her to explore the relationship of balance within systems, especially in relation to those that humans have created.



Camille was introduced to poetry at the age of 9 at school and was instantly captivated by this use of language to both tell a story and analyze an idea. She continued to write poetry for this purpose but did not pursue it as a career path until 2016, after a year studying architecture at Curtin University and writing the poem Behind the facade. Realizing her true passion was to use writing and art as a way to gain a deeper understanding of the world she swapped architecture for poetry and wrote the book Behind the Facade in 2016 (published 2017).



She recently completed a series of poetry art prints for Sparrow Poetry. Currently writing blog articles for Sparrow poetry and working on a second book, due for release in late 2018.
