I’m the author of Woman Last Seen in Her Thirties (out 2/27/18), Forever is the Worst Long Time, The Art of Forgetting, and the #1 Kindle bestseller Life and Other Near-Death Experiences, which was recently optioned for film. My novels have been translated into twelve languages.

In another life, I was a health editor at Real Simple and Fitness magazines; these days, I write for publications like Fast Company, Forbes, O: The Oprah Magazine, Parade, Time, and others.

When I'm not at my computer, you'll find me with my nose in a book, running after my two kids, or planning my next trip (most likely to Puerto Rico, where my husband was born and raised). Visit me at www.camillepagan.com.

I grew up in Michigan and attended the University of Michigan as an undergraduate, then lived in New York for the better part of a decade (and Chicago for a few years) before moving back to Ann Arbor. Every location in Forever—and all of my books, really—is a place I've spent a good amount of time in. I find it more meaningful to write about places that are important to me (for example, Puerto Rico, where I spend part of each year with my family, and of course, Ann Arbor).(less)

Hi Kate,
Absolutely. I often say that if I wasn't a health journalist and novelist, I would be some other type of writer; I've been drawn to it as long as I can remember. As you eloquently say, there's something really satisfying about structuring words to convey meaning.

Couldn't put it down. The characters were compellingly flawed and the ending completely surprised me.
