Author's Message

When reminded that she's going into her 18th year as a novelist and her March release, ABOUT ADAM, a Mira historical, is her sixty-somethingth book (including novellas), Cameron replies, "You're kidding. I'm much too young!"

But she has all the accolades that accompany a well-established career, including regular appearances on the New York Times, USA Today and Washington Post bestseller lists and three industry-related career achievement awards. In fact, Cameron began her writing career with merits. She won the Pacific Northwest Writers Association literary contest, which got her an agent, and a publishing contract quickly followed. However, to make that novel happen, Cameron, who had three young children at the time, wrote from 4 until 7 am, and during her children's nap time.

Further indicating a stellar career, Cameron has a healthy array of backlist titles, both historical and contemporary, that never go out of style for readers. Among these are the beloved stories in her historical Mayfair Square series, inspired while she was resting on a bench in a London square after walking all day. While Cameron stared at a wonderful Regency-era house, a strange old man came to the door. She says, "He really looked as if he wasn't part of this world." And so 7 Mayfair Square, its residents and Sir Septimus Spivey, a crotchety, meddling ghost, were born. ABOUT ADAM is the fifth installment, the tale of brooding and irresistible Adam Chillworth, who resides in the attic of No. 7 Mayfair, driven away from his demanding family by his desire to paint. Princess Desirée's audacious plans to knock herself off the shelf and into Adam's arms are blocked at every turn. But far more dangerous than their growing passion are those who would kill to get the girl's fortune for themselves. Even Spivey is afraid for the safety of the lovers.

Among Cameron's popular contemporaries are her Louisiana-set novels The French Quarter and Cold Day in July (KISS THEM GOODBYE is due out later this year). The South's hidden pasts, strong family roots, high society and backwater bayou towns provide the ideal backdrop for Cameron's romantic suspense voice, twisting plots and vivid characters. "Contemporary romances give me that great sense of now,
of being able to go and see and hear and become part of what I'm
writing. I get a sensation, as if I'm jumping from a high board into
a warm pool way below."
