Cameron Williams was born in Burlington, North Carolina, where she lived for three years before her family relocated to Florida. Despite her upbringing on Florida’s east coast, among the snowbirds and tourists, Cameron was raised to appreciate all things Southern. She especially enjoys cooking and drinking an occasional glass of bourbon.
Cameron received her Ph.D. from Florida State University. Her research interests include twentieth-century/contemporary Southern literature and feminism and gender studies. Her dissertation explores the intersection of sexual violence and gender representation in the fiction of William Faulkner, Harper Lee, James Dickey, Cormac McCarthy, and William Gay. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her boyfriend and her dog.
