ABOUT THE AUTHOR
#1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron is a clever and engaging writer with a talent for offering uplifting and often laugh-out-loud novels that speak to the hearts of adults and young adults alike.  He’s is the author of numerous dog-centric novels, including the wildly popular A Dog's Purpose—which hit the big screen in January 2017 from Universal—A Dog’s Journey, The Dogs of Christmas, The Dog Master, and The Puppy Tales series for young readers set in the ADP universe.  A major motion picture of his 2017 novel, A Dog's Way Home, starring Ashley Judd, is in production from Sony, and Cameron and his wife and screenwriting partner, Cathryn Michon, are once again the screenwriters.  Cameron is a champion of animal welfare, and his novels encourage humans to love unconditionally, just as dogs do.
