Mark Cameron

I am a passionate and versatile writer and author of two novels. I am also a book designer and publishing consultant with a deep understanding of the independent publishing process, from concept to production to distribution.

My first two novels, Goodnight Sunshine (2015) and 17 Weddings (2018), were both shortlisted for the Whistler Independent Book Awards. In recent years I have worked in a variety of genres, including poetry, songwriting, and playwriting. I am currently working on a Young Adult speculative fiction duology, and I am about to pursue an MFA in Creative Nonfiction at the University of King’s College in Halifax.
