For the fourth year in a row, Josh and Dietrich had the privilege of being invited to the 2014 Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators conference, or SCBWI. While there, they sat down with three young adult authors. The first of these interviews was with Gennifer Choldenko, the author of ten young adult novels, and best known for the critically acclaimed "Al Capone" series. These books follow the life of a young man in the early 20th century living on the island prison of Alcatraz, and his relationships and trials in this unusual environment. Gennifer discusses the extraordinary research that led her to write these books, the way her life experiences have bled over to her pages, and the way she looks at creating believable characters in such an unusual environment.
