Though not of the infamous Madden football family, Kerry Madden grew up with a football-coach father. Madden discusses what it was like to change teams frequently and how this influences her work, especially her young adult novels. As a creative writing professor and editor of the award-winning PoemMemoirStory, Madden's conversation with Don Noble sparkles with the energy that fuels her prolific work. Special thanks to Gena Christopher and Jacksonville State's writing conference "On the Brink" for their hospitality and their library staff for being such patient hosts!
