W. Bruce Cameron worked for General Motors and got up early
every morning and wrote novels. He started to write a
column on the Internet for friends, which grew, and at its
peak had 40,000 readers. The Rocky Mountain News hired him
to be a columnist and the column was nationally syndicated.
The column "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter"
was so popular he expanded the topic into a book published
by Workman in 2001. The book was a New York Times
bestseller and then Bruce developed it into the TV show. He
lives in L.A.
