About the Author

Camron Wright holds a master's degree in writing and public relations. He says he began writing to get out of attending MBA school, and it proved the better decision. His first book, Letters for Emily, was a Reader's Choice award winner, as well as a selection of the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild. Camron is also the author of The Rent Collector.


"Despite being adopted from India, Taj is an excelling American teen. When he's matched with an Indian family during a study-abroad program in London, Taj begins to remember pieces of his childhood...and the family from which he was kidnapped and sold to an orphanage. Hoping to understand more about his identity, Taj immerses himself in Indian culture...and eventually marries an Indian woman who turns out to have a surprising connection to his past. Armed with a map drawn from memory, Taj returns to India to search for his birth family. Wright (The Rent Collector, 2012) turns the story of the real-life Chellamuthu/Taj into a meditation on identity and the meaning of family, and a novel that is sure to be a book club favorite." -- "Booklist"

"Truly a remarkable story of one young man's journey to discover his past. Camron Wright's fascinating novel is actually based on a true story, which makes it all the more powerful."
(four and a half out of five stars)-- "Portland Book Review" (9/8/2016 12:00:00 AM)

"When I finished The Orphan Keeper I was keenly aware of the fragility associated with losing something precious then finding something of even greater value. Beautifully crafted by Camron Wright...Like Dickens, the child in this story is subjected to loss leavened with love. Everything that happens is not fiction. It happened as written, and for a reader who waivers between agnosticism and belief, this is a story that has me -- and keeps me -- thinking. The loss and pain [is] described with consummate skill. The Orphan Keeper taps into questions of coincidence and belief that have kept me in a state of wonder since I reluctantly closed its covers. Amazing read."-- "The Huffington Post" (9/21/2016 12:00:00 AM)
