Q&A: W.Va. Author on the Importance of Protecting Your Ability to Write

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, best-selling author Sheila Redling from Huntington has written nine books. After losing her will to write for a time, she is back on track and more books are on the way. Inside Appalachia associate producer Eric Douglas spoke with her about the importance of protecting your ability to write. And she has some advice for other writers.

Also on today’s show, across Appalachia, more than a million acres of formerly-mined lands are stunted -- where native trees can't grow. Now, as Andy Kubis reports for The Allegheny Front, conservationists are using a new strategy to bring back forests.
