Anne Cameron

Anne Cameron is a Canadian novelist, poet, screenwriter and short story writer. She was born in Nanaimo, BC. She began writing at an early age, starting with theatre scripts and screenplays. In 1979, her film Dreamspeaker, directed by Claude Jutra, won seven Canadian Film Awards, including best script. After being published as a novel, Dreamspeaker went on to win the Gibson Award for Literature. She has published more than 30 books, including the underground classic Daughters of Copper Woman, its sequel, Dzelarhons, novels, stories, poems and legends - for adults and children. Her most recent novels are Family Resemblances, Hardscratch Row, and a new, revised edition of Daughters of Copper Woman. In a recent issue of BC Booklook Anne asked “The crackdown on terrorists in the name of protecting free speech has resulted in a crackdown on free speech, hasn’t it?” She currently lives in Tahsis, BC and is working on a new novel “White Rapids”, which is a multi-generational novel focussing on the history of coal on Vancouver Island, and the struggles of coal miners and their families to organize unions and become something other than slaves to the Dunsmuir Coal Company.
