Mauldin was invited to contribute this autobiographical essay to "The Spirit That Wants Me: A New Mexico Anthology," 1991, edited by J Dianne Duff, Jill Kiefer and Michelle Miller, and published by Duff, Inc.  An invitation was sent to creative artists who were non-New Mexico natives and who were willing to share how taking up residence in New Mexico had influenced their creative output.
