Authors Road Interview: John Steinbeck

John Steinbeck was arguably one of America’s greatest writers and author who won almost every literary award available, including the Nobel Prize for Literature. As fellow authors, we can tell you that Steinbeck’s writing drives us nuts because it’s so damn good.

About Authors Road

The Authors Road is a journey of discovery. We are writers, artists, parents, travelers and documentarians, and along with our dog, Ella, a truck named “Rocinante Tres” (after Don Quixote’s horse and John Steinbeck’s camper-truck), and an RV named “Hardscribble House II” (after the home of an old friend, writer Hugh Mulligan), we are on the road. We are doing this because we are avid readers and writers, love to travel, and are curious about the dynamic changes in today’s writing and publishing scene. And we are doing this to honor one of America’s greatest natural resources — its writers. Learn more at
