About Gwen Cooper

My name is Gwen Cooper, and I'm a New York Times bestselling author of cat books--I've written eight so far and have been published in more than 20 languages. 

I'm also a fierce advocate for rescue animals, particularly special-needs animals, who are--like my blind cat Homer once was--so often overlooked in finding forever homes.  My fundraising efforts have raised over $1,000,000 for small shelters and rescue groups all over the world in the past 10 years.  

Now I'm embarking on a new challenge: I plan to publish three to five new books in 2021 independently of traditional publishing, because traditional publishing only allows me to publish one new book every two to three years. I have several cat-tastic books already in progress that I'm SUPER excited to share with you! 

Of course, moving away from traditional publishing means forgoing the cash advances that traditional publishers typically offer. With your support here on Patreon, I'll be able to write and publish my new books 100% independently. Plus, I'll be able to continue my fundraising efforts on behalf of small, grass-roots shelters--all while keeping my books, my podcast, and Homer's 900,000-strong social media accounts completely free of sponsorships or advertising.

Homer taught me that heroes are everywhere--that we can all be heroes by doing little things with an open heart. I hope you'll join my Patreon supporters and become a Homer's Hero today!
