Cameron Macintosh is the author of more than 150 books across a wide range of genres, published in Australia and around the world.

He grew up in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, constantly dreaming about faraway places and imaginary creatures, both of which found their way into his drawings and earliest stories.

Cameron is a graduate of RMIT’s Diploma of Professional Writing & Editing and holds a BA (Hons) from the University of Melbourne. Prior to moving into full-time writing, he worked as a freelance editor, and later as a Senior Editor at Nelson Cengage. Since then, he has written more than 100 books for students and teachers, and has been a co-author of several award-winning educational series. 

In 2017, he branched into trade publishing with the release of Tape Escape, the first title in the popular Max Booth Future Sleuth series – now a series of six books.

Cameron is a member of Writers Victoria and PEN Melbourne, and is a proud supporter of Animals Australia. When he isn’t writing, he loves travel, old guitars, ‘80s comic books and just about anything to do with Italy or Japan.

He lives and works on the lands of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation and wishes to pay respects to Elders past and present.
