Bruce Cameron is the author of A Dog’s Purpose, a best selling book that was put on the New York Times best seller’s list. He has created a website that showcases A Dog’s Purpose as well as other books he has written.
Throughout his life, Bruce quickly learned that writing wasn’t easy. During the begining of his career he r
eceived a mere fifty dollars for a short story he created, but he didn’t stop there. He did a variety of jobs while he continued to write ranging from selling life insurance to making wine equipment.
Then in 1995 he started to get somewhere, he started an online internet column and soon got as many as 40,000 subscribers. He soon got his columns into the Rocky Mountain News. A column he had made for them, inspired him to write his first book.
It was called Eight Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter and that was the beginning of many other books he would start to write. His first book hit 14th on the New York Times Best Sellers list. It began to show up on TV shows such as CNN and ABC. This author went on many radio shows and talk shows, he was told he was “funny and engaging.” By 2011 he was nominated Newspaper Columnist of the Year by NSNC.
He began to write other family oriented books, such as Eight Simple Rules and Eight Simple Rules for Marrying My Teenage Daughter, and A Dad’s Purpose. How to Remodel a Man on him onto Orpah’s show.
What I really wanted to know was what inspired him to make A Dog’s Purpose? How many dogs did he have growing up? On his website he claims that it was his love for fiction that movtated him to create this book. He also claims that “dog’s are wonderful creatures,” which might explain why he choose a dog’s perspective specifically.
