Personal Quote:

Characters do not come out of the thin air. I think writers acquire characters by living a life in which something is risked. It's only by being defeated, rejected, exalted, by going through all the peaks and valleys, that you can acquire anything worth writing down.

Trivia:

After staying with Kevin Costner for several months, he wrote Dances with Wolves (1990), that he was reading to Costners' 3 year old daughter before moving out to Arizona. See more »
