Fulkerson says.  “I figure that if I’m going to write, I need to be adventuring.  My experiences naturally feed into my writing, and I want my writing to be extraordinary.  I’m open to trying just about anything, and I love new challenges.  I think that if God went through all the trouble of making such a big, beautiful world, we might as well go ahead and make use of it.
