Cameron Bolling will be here Saturdayt Jan 4th at 2 pm with is debut novel, SKYBORN. Oleja Raseari is itching for a fight. For generations, she and her people have been enslaved at the bottom of a desert canyon. They spend their days in the mines, toiling away to earn another meal from their mysterious captors. Well, most of them do. Oleja, a tinkerer and self-taught fighter, has bigger things on her mind. No one in history has ever escaped successfully, and Oleja loves nothing more than a challenge. Many have attempted escape; death caught them all—and for Oleja, death is not an option. But making it to the outside means confronting a world she knows nothing about—a world none of her people have seen in hundreds of years. And it just might prove to be more deadly than the world she aims to leave behind
Of those who knew Cameron Bolling as he was growing up, none ever doubted that he would become an author. At seven years old, he turned a one-page class writing project into a four-page short story, and at twelve he did the same, this time writing 108 pages over the course of his summer vacation. Starting from a young age and continuing up to the present, he has been determined to scribble out the maximum number of words possible to write in a lifetime, and then some.
Fantasy has long been a passion of Cameron’s. His earliest inspiration came from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan, his gateway to the genre. From there, Cameron found a deep love for fantasy, enjoying the works of JRR Tolkien, Leigh Bardugo, Terry Pratchett, and Garrett Robinson, among countless others.
After a near-collision with culinary school that would have sent him down an entirely different path, Cameron ended up at a small liberal arts college in the woods of New Hampshire studying creative writing. By the time he graduates in May 2020, he is on track to publish his first two novels, with more to follow soon after.
