Pleasantly Stunned

I had never heard of the children’s author Kate DiCamillo. Apparently, I am one of the few. She is a best selling author of childrens books and has a following that would rival J. K. Rowling! The 30 year old author said she was “pleasantly stunned” by her success-I’m impressed at how she followed her heart and found her true calling. After attending the University of Florida she went from one dead-end job to another. She moved to Minneapolis becasue a friend reloacating there needed a roomate. She got a job as a “picker” in a book warehouse, writing in the early morning and working in the evening. The rest, as they say, is history! Sometimes it’s so hard to find our passion and make some serious cash flow in the process-but it helps if you follow your heart. Here’s a link to the NY Times story on her.
