Roser Caminals earned her M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Barcelona. A native of Barcelona, she is the author of seven novels and one non-fiction book. Her work, published in three languages (Catalan, English, and Spanish), and in paperback, hardback, and digital form, has been featured at the International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany. She also has an interest in literary translation. Her English rendition of the Spanish classic Los Pazos de Ulloa (The House of Ulloa), by Emilia Pardo Bazán, was published by The University of Georgia Press and earned her a grant-award from the Spanish Embassy in 1992. In 1996 she won first prize in narrative at the Jocs Florals de la Diàspora, a contest for Catalan writers outside of Catalonia, for Les herbes secretes (The Secret Herbs). Since then she has received critical acclaim in the Spanish media (newspapers, radio, and television), as well as in the Mexican newspaper La Jornada. Her novel Cinc-cents bars i una llibreria (Five-Hundred Bars and One Bookstore) was celebrated in La Vanguardia as “one of the best Catalan novels written in recent years”. Roser Caminals is currently an Emerita Professor of Spanish at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland, and is married to author William Heath. The title of her upcoming book is The American Seduction.
