About Cameron (The Official One)
Romance author Cameron Allie grew up in a small town north of Toronto. As a child she loved stories, and after reading her first romance novel at age fifteen, her dreams of writing became singularly focused on the love story. She is currently living in Ontario with her husband, and with her cat, who is constantly trying to interrupt the writing process.
What do I write:
I love writing love stories. I’ve always enjoyed reading about the journey two people take when they fall in love. Watching a strong, sexy alpha man get thrown off course by a woman who generally caused nothing but chaos and disruption in his life, is such a thrill. So that’s what I write. Two (sometimes more) people falling in love and all the bumps that they endure along the way.
Currently I write contemporary erotic romance, but in the near future I hope to branch into some paranormal shifter stories. Mostly my stories feature M/F relationships, however, this autumn I will be releasing a few short M/M love stories as well. I believe that love knows no boundaries, and I write my characters without limits in regards to sexuality, race and beliefs.
Under the Books page you’ll find more details about each book. Often I have bonus scenes that I’ve included along with the blurb and excerpt.
About my blog:
My blog is a space I use to post about writing and reading. I’ll talk about my favourite books, and about the writing process. Each Wednesday I play host to other authors, in what I call #AuthorSpotlight. We conduct a short interview, followed by an excerpt. It’s a great way for readers to learn about new authors and see if they enjoy that particular author’s style. Occasionally, these spotlight will feature contests.
In my blog I also like to post “Sandbox” scenes. These are sort of like deleted scenes or bonus scenes. They involve characters that you’ve read about, and give me a chance to play, but aren’t essential to a reader’s understand of the novel. For example I wrote one featuring Nick and Amelia from My Mistletoe Master, called Gym Class.
Under News you can find all the latest updates from me, this will include cover reveals, news and upcoming releases. Currently I’m working on the final novel in the Unexpected Changes series. Afterwards, I’m planning a few surprises that link into the series, after which I will begin work on a new project.
You can also sign up for my newsletter (via the Contact page). Once a month I release a newsletter that includes the latest updates, and news. I also run exclusive contests for newsletter recipients only, it’s a great way to win a free ebook.
Why erotic romance?
I originally set out to write romance novels. I started with a historical paranormal romance, which I pitched several years ago. The book was not ready, for many reasons, and one day I hope to revisit it. A few years went by, and I started multiple writing projects (as I always do!), but life got in the way of completing any of them (university, wedding, first house, the dreaded day job).
My university writing professor once told me that the most well written part of a short story I had handed in was the sex scene, which got me thinking, maybe I should try writing and publishing an erotic romance first. I figured that was the fastest and easiest scene I had ever written, so why not give erotica a try? I’ve come to learn that the love scenes are generally one of the most difficult parts of writing an erotic romance.
Often my ideas start off as a question. So I asked myself if you had a crush on your older brother’s best friend, and he’d turned you down, what would be the worst thing that could happen to you? Well, he could walk in on you masturbating to a spanking porno. That would be pretty mortifying. And that’s how Nick and Amelia came into existence.
Darcy is our spoiled little tabby cat. She was a wedding present from my sister and brother. She’s a shelter cat. I say spoiled because she has her own water fountain, WAY too many toys, and we just love her to bits. She’s not named after Darcy Tucker, nor Mr. Darcy. She’s just Darcy, our lovable, sometimes indifferent, feline.
