"I find that non-fiction is like breathing out between long bouts with fiction. I like to be out of doors and on foot as much as possible. I've roamed extensively across Washington State, where the vast majority of my published work is set. The heartbreaking beauty of the world speaks to me in a powerful way and I feel a constant compulsion to be in the presence of mountains, rivers, fields, coulees, canyons, breaks, draws, and woodlands. A sense of place informs much of my work, which is something I can't seem to help." David Guterson
