PETTY MAGIC: Being the Memoirs and Confessions of Miss Evelyn Harbinger, Temptress and Troublemaker (Shaye Areheart/Crown, 2010)
Camille DeAngelis was born in November 1980 in New Jersey, where she still lives (most of the time). She received a B.A. in Art History from New York University in 2002. During her time at NYU she wrote and worked for the Washington Square News and spent an idyllic semester at La Pietra in Florence. After graduating, she worked as an editorial assistant in a nonfiction imprint at HarperCollins. Camille’s first travel-writing gig was co-writing HANGING OUT IN IRELAND, a shoestring guide published in 2001. Between her first research trip in the spring of 2000 for HANGIN OUT and her most recent experience writing for Moon Handbooks in 2006, she’s been back to Ireland many times. She lived in Galway in 2004-2005 while in the M.A. in Writing program at the National University of Ireland, Galway, and wrote MARY MODERN while there.
