Bret Witter

Hello fellow book lovers! Thank you for visiting my page. I am a full-time professional writer, usually working with a co-author on their inspiring true story or to bring their vast knowledge of some interesting subject to the public. I grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, attended Duke University, and worked a series of forgettable jobs for twelve years until getting my big break when Vicki Myron and I collaborated on Dewey, the story of the famous library cat of Spencer, Iowa, in 2008. I have written 8 NYT bestsellers; combined, they have sold more than 3 million copies, been translated into more than 30 languages, and spent almost two years on the New York Times bestseller list. Both Dewey and The Monuments Men, the basis of the movie starring George Clooney, where #1 NYT bestsellers. I live in Decatur, Georgia, and yes, I'm happy to come to your book event if you are in the area (and especially if you are serving wine and/or cookies). Visit my website at www.bretwitter.com.
