(Camille Noe Pagán)

Over the past decade, my work has appeared in/on Allure, Arthritis Today,, Glamour, Mens Health, O: The Oprah Magazine, Parade,, Womens Health, and many others. Im currently the health editor at Real Simple magazine. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, where I studied English and Native American literature, and worked as a research assistant in the department of cardiology at the U of M Health System.

Though Im passionate about health and nutrition, fiction is my first love. I started writing novels in earnest shortly after my daughter was born seven years ago. Dutton and Plume (imprints of Penguin Books) published my debut, The Art of Forgetting, as did several foreign publishers. The Chicago Tribune says Pagán writes with both a subtle sense of humor and great wisdom about the power of friendship and the importance of forgiveness in her quietly compelling literary debut.

Genres: General Fiction, Romance

Matchmaking for Beginners (2018)
Maddie Dawson
"I can’t remember the last time I loved the characters of a novel as much I loved those in Matchmaking for Beginners. Maddie Dawson has spun a story as magical as her delightful protagonist, Blix, who can’t help but cause chaos as she brings the right people together in the most unconventional ways. Every page of this novel was a joy to read."
True Places (2019)
Sonja Yoerg
"With luminous prose and a story that speaks straight to the heart, Sonja Yoerg has crafted another stunning novel. True Places is a beautiful reminder that though we may busy ourselves seeking what we want, what we need has an uncanny way of finding us."

Alison Hammer is an exciting new voice in women’s fiction, and I can’t wait to read what she writes next."
The Bright Side of Going Dark (2020)
Kelly Harms
"Even casual users knows how absurd and unrealistic social media can be—yet keep logging on day after day. Kelly Harms takes this dichotomy to new heights in a clever and unputdownable story of two women whose so-called online lives collide IRL. I laughed, I cried, I came away from the experience with a newfound appreciation for life—which is to say The Bright Side of Going Dark is everything I’d hope for in a Kelly Harms novel, and more. I loved every page."

Side Trip (2020)
Kerry Lonsdale
"Smart, sexy, and unexpected—Side Trip is everything that makes a novel unputdownable, which is why I devoured it in two days. Kerry Lonsdale’s latest demonstrates what fans like me already know: she just keeps getting better and better."
The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany (2020)
Lori Nelson Spielman
"If you love Moonstruck as much as I do, you'll fall head over heels for The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany. In this captivating and utterly charming tale of several generations of 'cursed' women, Lori Nelson Spielman proves--yet again--that she's a masterful storyteller. I loved every page."
