Author Spotlight-Rachel Renée Russell

We spoke with Rachel Renée Russell about the inspriation for her best selling series, The Dork Diaries. Her newest in the series, Dork Diaries 14: Tales from a Not-So-Best Friend Forever, is out now! 

The Dork Diaries series was inspired by my dorky daughter, Nikki, who also illustrates the books. Many of the dramatic tales, zany escapades, and exciting adventures chronicled in the books are based on real-life experiences from our own middle-school years. I am thrilled to know that girls and boys around the world enjoy my book series and are inspired to embrace their uniqueness and be kind to others.  So, just keep reading, and always let your inner Dork shine through!
