The Nam in Literature

A horror writer is basing a novel on Brownsville.

So that means it's a memoir, right?

It's By the Light of the Moon by Larry Kerr. So that means it's about drugs deals, prostitution, and robberies, right? Also known as a memoir, right?

“I was always told to write what you know,” Kerr said. “I had the experience here in Fayette County so it seemed like a good setting for a novel.”

So that means it's a memoir, right?

Oh, wait, it's about werewolves. The title didn't imply that or anything. But what about "the experience" Kerr is talking about? The article doesn't specify. As far as I know, we don't have werewolves here. Bigfoot sure, but not werewolves.
