| Kamon was born in Quebec, Canada, in 1957. She has been a high school teacher and a business manager, and she studied acupuncture in Montreal before moving to Thailand in 1989. In Thailand, Kamon has worked as teacher and library manager in international schools for 23 years, applying the groundbreaking approach of teaching mindfulness and social emotional learning to children in her lessons, which she believes is the way education, will evolve in the future. She has practiced secular meditation since she was a teenager and uses it as a tool for coping with everyday life. In addition, she has learned the Thai and Chinese languages and has a keen interest in the wisdom of Asian culture. Taking the best from the Thai way of thinking, she has applied this knowledge to her own life, making it more fun and more rewarding. Kamon has always aspired to write children’s books and it is now a reality. Kamon’s books are easy-to-read stories designed to entertain children and teach them mindfulness regarding mind, body, and the environment. These essential skills aim to help children shape their future in a positive way. Kamon works with a young Thai illustrator, Joey Krit. Together they create funny and colorful life lessons that are appetizing for the reader’s mind.
