Camels and Shapes of Darkness in a Time of Olives, the poetry collection, is accompanied by Friends: the Adventures of a Professional Amateur, a rare autobioraphical narrative, which begins with the author's student years in the early 50's and includes accounts of her adventures and misadventures with family and friends. Since the latter include the major writers and artists of the time, like Estrella Alfon, Juan and Kerima Tuvera, Alex Hufana, Joan Edades, etc., the book is valuable not just as literature but as literary history.

Tita Lacambra-Ayala has received literary awards and citations from the Far Eastern University, Palanca, Free Press, Focus and the Manila Critics Circle for both prose and poetry from the sixties to the present. Two of her poems, Cactus and Creations, Precisely, were selected by Jose Garcia Villa for inclusion in his anthology, A Doveglion Book of Philippine Poetry. Both Camels and Friends, were written under a National Fellowship in Poetry Grant (1994-95) from Likhaan: the U.P. Creative Writing Center.

Lacambra-Ayala, who is also a painter, is the wife of writer Jose V. Ayala, and the mother of singer-composer Joey Ayala. She resides in Davao City with her artist-husband and a number of their six children and eleven grandchildren. She publishes the Road Map series, pocket-size posterbooks of painting, poetry, and the environment.
