Cameron Dokey (born 1956) is an American author. She lives in Seattle, Washington with her three cats and her husband. She has a collection of over 50 old sci-fi and horror films.
Cameron was born in the Central Valley of California. Cameron grew up reading classical literature and mythology, perhaps due to her father, Richard, being a teacher of Philosophy, Creative Writing, and Western Literature. Both Cameron's parents are authors. Her mother's work is less well-known than that of her father. Cameron's grandmother, Mabel, was a singer on the radio in the early decades of the 20th Century. Creativity apparently runs in the family.
Cameron studied Archaeology at Sonoma State University, near the Napa wine country, just prior to extending her high school career as an actress by acting for several years at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, in Ashland, Oregon. Cameron then moved to Seattle, where she continued acting at several locations including the Seattle Rep. It was in Seattle that Cameron met her husband, Jim Verdery.
After several years of acting and working in different capacities, Cameron has settled into writing, and continues to enjoy her cats and science fiction collection (only rivaled by that of her father and brother, who is also an author).
