Cam Walker was born in Melbourne, Australia and moved to the U.K. with his Mother, June, when he was young. Cam completed all of his schooling in the U.K. before securing a job at Manchester Airport as a baggage handler, where it could be said, his interest in aviation began. Upon reaching his late teens, Cam returned to Australia to live with his father, Graeme.
Cam began his working life in Australia as a barman at the Rosebud Hotel, Victoria, before seeking a career in the Royal Australian Air Force as an Avionics Technician. He remained in the military for seven years, posted to an air-to-air refuelling squadron, before parting ways with the Air Force in 2011 to pursue other ventures. Cam is now applying his trade with a large American company in Brisbane, servicing military aircraft.
Cam currently resides in Brisbane, Australia with his partner, Sarah and his two girls, Georgia and Olivia. He also lives with Roxy, a 45-kilogram Rhodesian Ridgeback x Bull Arab and Rosie the Eclectus parrot.
‘Contrail: Conspiracy’ was his first venture into writing and was written in an astonishing three weeks during 2020. He then backed this up in 2021 with the amazing follow-up novel, ‘Contrail: Terminal’ whilst simultaneously launching the prequel to the series, ‘Contrail: Genesis.’
"I sincerely hope everyone enjoys the series as much as I have enjoyed writing it, just don't read it before you get on a flight, it could terrify you, and remember it's a work of fiction, I can do what I want in my world!"
Cam enjoys riding his motorbike, playing the guitar, Formula One, MotoGP, and he is also a life-long Manchester United fan, but his main passion in life is writing.
