In The Spotlight - Dana Cameron

Photo by James Goodwin

I have really enjoyed Dana's Seven Kinds of Hell novel, here is a little more about her!

Like her series protagonists, Dana Cameron was a professional archaeologist, working on Old and New World sites dating from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century. She began writing mystery fiction after an encounter with an armed site looter. 

Site Unseen (2002) featured New England archaeologist Emma Fielding; this was followed by Grave Consequences, Past Malice, A Fugitive Truth, and More Bitter Than Death, and the Anthony Award-winning Ashes and Bones. A series of short stories led her to explore other genres and subgenres, including historicals, thrillers, and noir ("Femme Sole" was short-listed for the Edgar Award).

But it was her Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award-winning urban fantasy short stories (including "The Night Things Changed" and "Swing Shift") that inspired Seven Kinds of Hell, the first Fangborn novel (47North), which will be followed by Pack of Strays. The protagonist Zoe Miller discovers her identity as a werewolf and one of the Fangborn, a race of vampires, werewolves, and oracles secretly dedicated to protecting humanity.

Dana is a member of The Femmes Fatales, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime (she's a past president of the New England Chapter). 

Dana lives in Massachusetts with her husband and feline overlords.
