Following are some Alex Flinn quotes which we have in our database of Quotes of Alex Flinn.
I was painfully shy, and I had tremendous difficulty making friends. So, lacking friends, I watched other people. Watching is something all writers must do, and it was in junior high that I learned to do it.
