As a child who lived a fairly nomadic existence while growing up, I’ve had the opportunity to experience life in a variety of locations within the United States. As an adult, I’ve stayed put for the most part in the place where I was born, the desert southwest.

As I enter into a new year, creating new stories, I find myself going back to an old question. Should I write what I know, or what I wish to know?


This is a question that I suspect plagues a great many writers. We’re so often told to write what we know. But if we did t...
