AMA with Natalia Sylvester

Born in Lima, Peru, NATALIA SYLVESTER came to the U.S. At age four and grew up in South Florida, where she received a B.A. In creative writing from the university of Miami.
A former magazine editor, she now works as a freelance writer in Austin, Texas and is a faculty member of the low-res MFA program at Regis University. Her articles have appeared in Latina Magazine, Writer’s Digest, The Writer, and CHASING THE SUN, partially inspired by family events, is her first novel. A few of her favorite things:
• Rescue dogs (especially hers)
• Chai lattes, preferably from bookstore cafés
• Alliteration and em dashes (in moderation! says the inner editor)
• Community and compassion, always
