Portland novelist Bill Cameron writes sharp-edged and gritty mysteries set mostly in Portland (next to Chelsea Cain, he is Portland’s scariest writer). His recent book County Line was featured in the May issue of the Atlantic Monthly. His 2010 Day One was set in both southern Oregon and Portland and features a teen runaway named Eager Gillespie, an abused wife fleeing her husband and father-in-law, a villain who attended Southern Oregon University, and Cameron’s engaging character Skin Kadish.
Here’s a clip from our 2010 Ashland Mystery interview.
More Bill Cameron in the weeks to come.
