Hi, Ms. DiCamillo! What is the collaboration process like once you finished your manuscript and are on the road to publishing it? Do you ever get nervous when collaborating with illustrators and/or editors that they might not share your vision? Thank you!
Hi Ray. I have been very, very, very, extremely lucky. My editors have always gotten what I am trying to do and have worked to help me try to do it better. As for the illustrators, I have been very, very, very, extremely lucky there, too. I don't work directly with the illustrators. Usually, I communicate with them via my editor--but in every instance, they have made my words better, funnier, deeper.
