"I didn't know anything about writing a screenplay, but somehow I ended up rewriting a screenplay." -- Kate DiCamillo
Katrina Elizabeth DiCamillo (b. March 25, 1964) is an American children's author. She is known for the Newbery Medal-winning book The Tale of Despereaux, the Newbery Honor book Because of Winn-Dixie, and the Mercy Watson series, plus numerous other award-winning and honored books.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania of Italian descent, DiCamillo suffered from chronic pneumonia. At age 5, she moved to Clermont, Florida for her health (warmer climate) with her mother and older brother, Curt DiCamillo, who would become a noted architectural historian. Her mother was a teacher. Her father stayed behind to sell his orthodontic practice and never rejoined the family in Florida.In 1987 DiCamillo received an English degree at the University of Florida and worked for various jobs after graduation. At age 30 she moved to Minneapolis and began working at a book warehouse. This job gave her inspiration to write for children and allowed her to meet a sales representative for Candlewick Press, resulting in a draft submission of what would become Because of Winn-Dixie.
