First Author Experience

The girls and I met the Norkett girls at Imaginon to listen to author Kate DiCamillo speak and then meet her.  She mainly let the audience ask questions and she gave inspiring answers.  She was a delight to listen and super funny.. Haven asked her how she decided to have her character Mercy Watson love toast with lots of butter and she told a cute story about a friend that loved toast and brought crusty toast in her new car. She also told about how she was denied 473 times from publishers. She writes two pages a day and she keeps a journal with her at all times to take notes and develop characters.  It was such a special afternoon.
