About the Author
Camille DeAngelis first traveled to Ireland as a college freshman to co-write Hanging Out in Ireland, a backpackers' guide published by Wylie & Sons in 2001. She graduated from New York University in 2002 with a minor in Irish Studies. After several years of visiting Ireland on vacation and visiting her grandmother's cousins in County Cavan, Camille moved to Galway in 2004 to enroll in the M.A. in Writing program at the National University of Ireland. She lived in Galway on and off until 2009, and goes back to visit as often as she can. 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 the B&B, and 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 www.cometparty.com.
