About the Author
Camille DeAngelis' love affair with Ireland began in 2001, when she first traveled there as a college freshman to co-write a backpackers' guide called Hanging Out in Ireland. After graduating from New York University with a minor in Irish Studies and several years of visiting family on the Emerald Isle, Camille moved to Galway in 2004 to enroll in the writing program at the National University of Ireland.
Camille enjoys making ten-pointed K-turns on country roads, a hot whiskey at the corner pub, and typing up the day's experiences back at her B&B, as well as writing weird and spooky fiction. Her most recent novel, Immaculate Heart, is set in Ireland, and her young adult novel, Bones & All, won an Alex Award from YALSA and the American Library Association in 2016.
Originally from New Jersey, Camille now lives in Somerville, Massachusetts. Visit her online at cometparty.com.
