About J. Cameron McClain


I’m an editor who writes for fun. Or a writer who edits for a living. Pick a day; I’m wearing one or both hats. My editing services page can be found here. I am also the founder and editor in chief of Ponahakeola Press, a small publishing house.

My first novel, The Five Watchers, is a modern horror fantasy (and the first in a series of three). My collection of short stories, Toccatas & Fugues: Stories So Far, comprises ten tales that run a spectrum of speculative fiction genres (ghost stories, horror, SF, fantasy, apocalyptic, and robot stories).

I’m currently working on a number of writing projects, including the sequel to The Five Watchers (Kamaitachi), and two more novels: Devi, and Alliance.
