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 NBCLatino.com. 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
