We are so pleased to bring you the final interview we recorded at the SCBWI conference in LA this summer: Kevin Emerson, author of the super-exciting Atlanteans series!
In addition to being a talented writer, Kevin is just about the nicest guy ever. We had a blast talking to him about his inspiration for the first book in the series, The Lost Code, his experiences at summer camp as compared to those of his characters, and what it was like to transition from writing for younger readers to writing YA. Enjoy!
