Skyla Dawn Cameron has been writing approximately forever.
Her early storytelling days were spent acting out strange horror/fairy tales with the help of her many dolls, and little has changed except that she now keeps those stories on paper. She signed her first book contract at age twenty-one for River, a unique werewolf tale, which was released to critical and reader praise alike and won her the 2007 EPPIE Award for Best Fantasy. She now has multiple series on the go to keep her busy.
In the name of research, she has planned–but not taken–extensive trips all over the world, learned to pick locks, watched dozens of hours of surgeries, and has undergone private investigator training. Her internet search terms have likely put her on numerous government watchlists, but she swears she is not actively trying to murder anyone other than her characters. Really.
Skyla is a fifth-generation crazy cat lady who lives in southern Ontario, where she writes a lot of books, works as a freelance designer, embroiders swear words onto fabric, and plays video games.
She is a titled lady and can be referred to as Her Ladyship.
You can visit her on the web at www.skyladawncameron.com. When she’s not writing or being glared at by cats, she’s probably on Twitter (or at least until it collapses)–you should ping @skyladawn and ask to see pictures of her cat Shawn. You can sign up for her newsletter at www.skyladawncameron.com/newsletter and support her work by becoming a Patron of Snark where she serializes exclusive books, offers excerpts of WIPs, and runs weekly write-ins.
Skyla is a member of SF Canada, Canada’s national association for professional speculative fiction writers, artists, and publishers.

Email: use the form below if you want to get in touch with me. Unless it’s spam. No, I don’t accept blog posts from random freelancers, and I will not respond.
Reader emails: I fucking LOVE reader emails. I will always, always answer fanmail. Unless it’s actually hatemail. Or really creepy.
