Cam Douglas (no relation to actor Michael or Kirk) writes historical fiction, non-fiction, short stories, and more. He grew up in Cleveland. Cam drove a cab in New York City, and became a hippie-gypsy transplant to California in 1976. He’s worked a variety of jobs and been self-employed three times.
Cam spent 5 years as the assistant editor/reporter/photographer/floor sweeper for the weekly Cedar Street Times in Pacific Grove, covering everything from police activity to seal poop. He wrote more than 60 installments of CST’s environmental column The Green Page to raise awareness about electric cars, fracking, green building, water management, and other environmental topics. His interviews and stories have been published in The Salinas Californian, 65 Degrees magazine, and Backroads magazine. He worked with retirees who wanted to tell their stories and helped them put their books together. Those included L’arte Della Vita, JB’s Journal, A Small Circle, Helen Guillou, and My Name is Shirley.
Cam is semi-retired and devoting more time to his craft, and to his hobbies of swimming, photography, and building model cars. He recently completed his first novel, and is looking into its publication. https://camdouglas.com/
