6 Facts About Kate DiCamillo

If you want to write, you should pay attention to people — everybody has a story — and listen to people when they talk. Not because you want to steal their story, but because almost everybody's interesting if you give them a chance and if you ask them the right questions.
So, that's it. Listen. Write. Read. Pretty simple. - Kate DiCamillo
