How does Gary Paulsen come up with great books? Gary Paulsen gets most of his inspiration from his childhood to write these great books. Gary Paulsens childhood was very rough. His parents did not take good care of him and he got bullied on the streets a lot. At age 14 he ran away from home. In the book I read, I learned how hard his life was when he was little and how his love of dogs helped him out. The dogs that he meet had a big impact on his life, so I could see how his relationship with dogs help him in life and that is how he writes those great stories.
