Kyle Cassidy's photo series "Where I Write" captures science fiction and fantasy writers in their native habitats. See which writers work in clutter, who keeps their pets close by, and which author writes by candlelight.

Cassidy says the project was inspired by a visit to a Hugo Award-winning author's house, where he began to wonder about the connection between a writer's work and their environment:

I spend a lot of time thinking about people's environments — the places they build around themselves, the things they choose to live with. Is there a connection, I started to wonder if there was a connection between the places that writers work and their work itself.

Cassidy plans to collect these and additional photos — including the Neil Gaiman and Lois McMaster Bujold's workspaces — with interviews from the authors into a full-length book.
