They've dredged the canal and some ground-level water tanks not far off from the site where her car was found. They've combed the woods in the area. They've read her diary and looked at her computer and found she had plans to go on a motorcycle trip a few days after she disappeared. She had just bought a motorcycle helmet. Six different psychics have applied themselves to the case with no results. We will probably never find out what happened to her. That is a mystery I will always wish we could solve--I can't imagine what it does to my aunt, her mother, not knowing what happened to her daughter.

I've thought about addressing it in one of my Veronica books. I'm not sure I ever will, though; I wouldn't want my aunt or any of Isabelle's other loved ones to feel like I was exploiting what happened to her. That's not why I would want to write about it, of course. I'd do it because often my Veronica books are a door to my fantasies--come uppance for vile people in the real world who will never get a real come uppance, that sort of thing. If I wrote about Isabelle in some way, it would be to create a story where the mystery is solved, and she is found. But like I said, I'm not sure I'll ever do that, or if I do, that I'll publish what I write.(less)

I've been working on the third book in my dystopian trilogy, but I don't want to do that one for NaNo because it's not the kind of book I feel I can rush to produce and then rework later--it's much more of a careful-as-you-go book to write. So for NaNo I have to decide which of the rest of the ideas to pursue. I've got some for the next Veronica book as well as some completely new ones. I get my ideas from current events for the Veronica books, usually, and then anything that inspires, angers, or fascinates me tends to find its way into all of my writing.(less)

Today is my last day at my current job. Back in March I got a lay off notice. I was completely blindsided. I've often complained about this job (teaching social studies in a continuation high school) and I've wanted to move on to something else, but I also have been doing this for seven years. I never anticipated getting laid off. There are parts of this job that I really love. There are parts... Read more of this blog post »

“The world still wants to ask that a woman primarily be pretty and if she is not, the mob pouts and asks querulously, 'What else are women for?”
W.E.B. Du Bois, A W.E.B. Du Bois Reader

“Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Essays and Aphorisms

“In a surreal gift from the universe, time both stands still and flies past you in that singular moment when you find out someone you once loved is gone.”
