"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Fiction by Camille DeAngelis

My fantasy novels are set in the ordinary world. It’s important to me to write something fresh and different each time, so the labels on my work range from science fiction to paranormal romance to gothic and horror. When people ask why I write fantasy, I tell them it’s because I get enough real life in real life!

I’m thrilled to announce that my debut middle grade novel, The Boy From Tomorrow, will be available in May 2018 from Amberjack Publishing. Details here.

My first short story, “The Coroner’s Bride,” is now available as an ebook from iTunes, Barnes & Noble, KoboScribd, and Amazon.

Maren wears black so the blood won’t show. Learn More

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
