About her debut novel, vanished., she writes, “In late April 1978, I said goodbye to my family and boarded a plane for Bangkok, Thailand, to begin an overland journey around the world. I carried a tote bag and soft-sided suitcase, a small notebook and an Olympus OM-1 camera with several rolls of slide film. During that 13-month journey, I wrote almost five hundred pages of notes, took more than six hundred slides, and sent dozens of letters. That cache sparked this novel.”
