He is also a certified scuba diver, man-tracker and an avid adventure motorcyclist, in which would later prominently feature motorcycles in his novels. Writing career Cameron loved to watch Indiana Jones and James Bond movies as a child, which aroused his interest in becoming a writer. He published his first novel, National Security (2011), which became critically acclaimed; bestselling thriller writer Brad Thor hailed it as "awesome" and praised Cameron as “one of the hottest new authors in the thriller genre”. Its success spawned seven more novels: Act of Terror (2012), State of Emergency (2013), Time of Attack (2014), Day Zero (2015), Brute Force (2015), Field of Fire (2016), and Dead Drop (2017); as well as a novella, The Triple Frontier (2018).Cameron’s short stories have appeared in The Saturday Evening Post and Boys' Life magazine.

Tom Clancy universe Cameron became a fan of Tom Clancy from reading The Hunt for Red October as a rookie policeman. Later on, his friend and writer of the Jack Ryan series Mark Greaney suggested him to his editor Tom Colgan when he was planning to step away from the franchise. Greaney later said of the recommendation: "His writing is both intelligent and action-packed, and Marc has an impressive personal resume that I am sure he will work into the novels to great effect.”The Real Book Spy announced Greaney's departure from the franchise on February 20, 2017, and introduced Cameron to replace him as writer of the Jack Ryan novels slated for winter release. Speaking about his inclusion into the series, he says: “I especially enjoy writing Jack Ryan. He’s such a good, honest archetype of a character. The cool thing about Jack is that he’s so strong and so vulnerable at the same time. I wanted to be sure I got him exactly right, so I wrote a lot of drafts of the chapters with him.” Regarding the negative reaction upon authors continuing the Tom Clancy universe after his death, Cameron asserts: “Some people are, like, ruined-their-life angry. I’m a lighten-up kind of guy. If you don’t want to read them, don’t. But there are so many stories in these characters, and we have an obligation to keep them going, authentically, like the original author wanted them to be.”Cameron's first entry in the series, Tom Clancy: Power and Empire, was published in November 2017 and debuted at number six on the New York Times bestseller list. Publishers Weekly praised the novel: "All the writers who have contributed to this series since Clancy’s death have been good, but Cameron’s formidable performance puts him at the head of the pack."
