Douglas Ewan Cameron is a retired professor of Mathematics from The University of Akron, Akron Ohio. He grew up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, attended Miami University (Oxford Ohio; BA), The University of Akron (Akron, OH; MS) and received his Ph.D. from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Blacksburg, Virginia). Upon retirement, he and his wife Nancy spend their summers on the shore of Hubbard Lake in the part of Michigan's lower peninsula known as "Up North" and winters in Copley, Ohio.

Douglas loves to fish and spends many summer days out on the lake fishing for walleye and smallmouth bass. Retirement has also afforded him and his wife time to travel and they have visited all seven continents and over 100 countries.

When he was teaching he wrote and had published 28 research papers, 8 of which were about the history of mathematics, in particular, toplogy, his speciality. When not traveling or fishing he has been able to return to his writing, something that he was not able to do while working. Many of he stories he writes are those that have occurred to him while either fishing or traveling and many incorparate places he has visited in his travels.
