Kameron Hurley

USA flag (b.1980)

Kameron Hurley currently hacks out a living as a marketing and advertising writer in Ohio. She's lived in Fairbanks, Alaska; Durban, South Africa; and Chicago, but grew up in and around Washington State. Her personal and professional exploits have taken her all around the world. She spent much of her roaring 20's traveling, pretending to learn how to box, and trying not to die spectacularly. Along the way, she justified her nomadic lifestyle by picking up degrees in history from the University of Alaska and the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Today she lives a comparatively boring life sustained by Coke Zero, Chipotle, low-carb cooking, and lots of words. She continues to work hard at not dying.
She has been awarded two Hugo Awards, the Kitschky Award for Best Debut Novel, and has also been a finalist for the Nebula Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the British Science Fiction and Fantasy Award, and the Locus Award.

Kameron Hurley recommends
These Burning Stars (2023)
(Kindom Trilogy, book 1)
Bethany Jacobs
"Immersive and epic; a sprawling space opera perfect for fans of A Memory Called Empire and Too Like the Lightning."
Leech (2022)
Hiron Ennes
"A tense, disturbing work of Gothic horror that embraces difficult themes of power, abuse, agency and raw survival in an unforgettably apocalyptic setting. Gory, shocking, raw - and utterly humane."
The Violence (2022)
Delilah S Dawson
"A compulsively readable fusion of domestic thriller and modern horror that shocks and surprises at every turn. A must-read!"
