How We Do It
Who We Are
Lila Holley is the visionary behind the Camouflaged Sisters brand.
Lila Holley is a multi-award-winning, bestselling author, Army Veteran, and founder of Camouflaged Sisters. She uses her books and real-life lessons to help other Service Members maneuver through the emotional battlefield of transitioning from the military, take ownership of their stories, and heal using the power of storytelling.
The Camouflaged Sisters anthology series consists of 8 published books sharing the inspirational stories of 130 courageous military women. The books cover topics such as leadership, mentorship, sisterhood, career challenges, and combat experiences. They also tackle tough topics like surviving military sexual assault, toxic leadership, PTSD, and surviving domestic violence while serving. These authors do not shy away from the ugly details of their experiences while sharing their lessons learned hoping to leave readers with a message of inspiration and hope. Their desire is for others to read their stories and know that they are not alone in their struggles. This method of writing and storytelling is healing for both the writers and the readers.
Lila believes there is no one better to tell these stories than the women who lived them. Camouflaged Sisters has created a platform for military women and women Veterans to share their incredible stories – where their voices are valued and their service honored.
