Authors Road Interviews Laura Chester

On a nearly perfect spring afternoon in the high Arizona desert we met and interviewed Laura Chester at her winter home. For years she and her husband have spent their winters down along the Mexican border where she devotes her time to riding her horses in the rugged landscapes, and working on her writing and editing.

In this interview Laura tells of the support and encouragement she got for her writing from her earliest years. And how, because of that reinforcement, she wrote and published more than two-dozen books and anthologies. As a young adult she fell into the world of poets and small presses, and became an editor and publisher, creating a full house of writing skills that we think you'll enjoy.

Also, we've recently seen a surge in new subscribers to The Authors Road. We want to thank you all for your joining us on this journey, and we sincerely hope we can keep your interest and support in the months ahead. We can assure you we have some wonderful interviews slated, including with songwriter Terry Allen, experts on Nobel Laureates Hemingway and Sinclair Lewis, novelists Audrey Niffenegger and Lois McMaster Bujold, Civil Rights activist Dr. Haki Madhubuti, and many others.
