Cameron Kent grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, the son of an Air Force General. After graduating from Wake Forest University, he embarked on a career in television journalism that spanned nearly 40 years. He received 14 Emmy nominations for his work in broadcasting, and won an Emmy for his reporting on the Pentagon after 9/11. He devoted much of his reporting to military veterans, chronicling their stories from the battlefields of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Cameron is the author of four books: Make Me Disappear, When the Ravens Die, The Road to Devotion, and The Sea is Silent.  He also has four films among his credits: Nightrangers, Seduced and Betrayed, The Witness Files, and Twist of Fate. The Road to Devotion is currently in development for a feature film. In addition, he’s written a Christmas musical, Welcome to Virginia, which will premiere in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, at the end of November.

In his spare time, Cameron enjoys travel, playing the guitar, and any outdoor activity. He’s an avid runner, having completed seven marathons, including the Boston Marathon in 2009. He’s also an active volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.

He currently resides in Winston-Salem, but spends as much time as possible at his cabin on the lake.
