Award Winning American Author and Anthologist
Cheryl Strayed became a sensation with the #1 New York Times bestselling book Wild, a memoir of Strayed’s life-changing hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. The memoir went on to be made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Reese Witherspoon.
Most of her writings and books are in form of personal memoirs and social fiction where she emphasizes on personal advices, morals and philosophies. She graduated with double Bachelors in Women’s Studies and English that gave her an extra edge to cover sociological and feminist issues that are reflected in her writings. Later, she got more exposure to social issues and preferences as she worked as a political organizer, youth advocate, office employee, and emergency medical technician.
Cheryl has written several New York Times bestsellers and her books have been translated into forty languages around the world. Her memoir Wild chronicled her 1,100 mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest Trail, the despair that drove her to it, the challenges she faced along the way and the profound reset that ensued. Cheryl’s essays have been published in too many publications to list including the Washington Post and Vogue.
Until recently, she ran a podcast called Dear Sugars, inspired by her popular advice column Dear Sugar.
