Gwen  Cooper

Gwen Cooper is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Homer's Odyssey: A Brave Feline Story, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat; the novels Love Saves the Day and Diary of a South Beach Party Girl; and Kittenish, a crowd-sourced collection of cat selfies from which 100% of the earnings were donated to fund animal rescue in Nepal following the 2015 earthquake. She speaks at shelter fundraisers frequently and donates 10% of her Homer's Odyssey income to charities that help mistreated, abandoned, and injured animals. She's also in charge of Homer's ongoing social media community, which reaches roughly two million cat lovers and rescuers every day from all around the world. Laurence, Gwen's spouse, resides in Manhattan. Clayton the Tripod and his littermate, Fanny, are her two ideal cats, who aren't impressed with any of it.
