A mystery to me




I was hoping you could help me with something. It's kind of a mystery. Here's how it started: I was dusting my precious and wonderful bookshelves, not my favorite task, when I got sidetracked by a few books that I haven't seen in awhile. In particular were 3 books by Cameron Dean- Passionate Thirst, Eternal Hunger, and Luscious Craving.

Have you read these books? I remember liking them so I tried to look the author up on the internet and see what new books had come out and...nothing, nada, zilch. So, option A is that the author never existed and the books magically wrote themselves. Option B has the author running off to Munchkinland and making nice with the lollipop guild. Or, option C is that this person has entered the Witness Protection program and is currently shucking corn in Iowa.

Have any of you heard of these books? Read them? Loved them? Or better yet, have any of you written them!? It's driving me crazy!!


And don't forget, today is Tax Day! And to ease the pain on our wallets, many retailers are offering freebies to customers! Woohoo! Starbucks is giving away free brewed coffee if you bring your own mug (my husband says he should just take a bucket) and Cinnabon has Tax Day Bites (sounds yummy to me). Here's a link to all the free goodies.

I haven't read them but I all three of them are sitting on my TBR pile. As far as I can tell these are the only books this person has written or it might be a pen name? Sorry, not really helpful.

It seems the books do exist, but no sight of the author! ;)
Iowa sounds about right...

I have never heard of the books or the author. They look like good reads.

Like you Anna I got the books when they released and literally went a little crazy when nothing else came out from Cameron Dean. This was a good series of reads and not sure what happened to the author after writing them... I have not looked into it since but now you have me wondering again, what happened to Cameron Dean?

Cameron Dean enjoyed a successful career as an actress in regional repertory theater before turning her hand to writing. She is also the author of Passionate Thirst and Luscious Craving. Cameron lives with her husband and assorted felines in Seattle.
I guess she went back to theater maybe?

I have them on my shelf also....like the commenter above said, maybe she went back to theatre?

Thanks for all the help in solving this mystery. My final thought is that maybe Dean is a pen name. Oh well. If you haven't read them, give them a try.

Hi Anna I read these several years ago and quite liked them. I do believe that Cameron Dean is a publishing house name and not a real author and may even be a collaboration. Here is a link to some folks who have researched it - Cameron Dead blog post article.
