How to write like Cheryl Strayed.

On this day in 1968, Wild author Cheryl Strayed was born in Spangler, Pennsylvania. At this point, the former Dear Sugar columnist needs no introduction. However, like many authors, Strayed’s success occurred after years of considerable struggle. In an interview with Manjula Martin and later reprinted in full via Vulture, Strayed revealed that she was $85,000 in debt when her best-selling memoir was published by Penguin Random House.

Don't Miss Our Live Q&A With Cheryl Strayed, No. 1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Wild

An author as widely read as Cheryl Strayed needs no introduction to our book-lovers, but it doesn't hurt to give one. She is the author of the No. 1 New York Times bestselling memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, the New York Times bestsellers Tiny Beautiful Things and Brave Enough, and the novel Torch. Readers and moviegoers alike will know Wild for its Oscar-nominated movie adaptation starring Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl and Laura Dern as Cheryl's mother, Bobbi, which follows Strayed as she explores the terrain of loss and self-acceptance on a solo, three-month, 1,100-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. An early favorite of Oprah Winfrey's, Strayed is also best known for her brand of radical empathy as advice-giver extraordinaire Sugar, which has seen her become the host of the New York Times hit podcast Sugar Calling as well as Dear Sugars, which she cohosted with Steve Almond.
