After a childhood spent in Moorestown, New Jersey, Camille DeAngelis studied art history and Irish Studies at New York University, the highlight of which was a semester at La Pietra in Florence. After several years of visiting Ireland on vacation - once with her sister Kate, sometimes with friends, but more often solo - she moved to Galway in 2004 to participate in the masters program in writing at the National University of Ireland.
Camille thoroughly enjoys writing about all that Ireland has to offer: making 10-pointed K-turns on back country roads, drinking a pint of Bulmers (no Guinness, thank you) at the corner pub, and typing up the day's experiences in B&B rooms with faded floral wallpaper. She is also the co-author of Hanging Out in Ireland, a shoestring guide for college students published in spring 2001. In addition to travel writing, she also writes fiction. Her debut novel is Mary Modern, published by Shaye Areheart Books, a division of Crown/Random House.
