Vanishing Act

As I get ready to release my third book, The Vanishing Family, I can’t help but wonder what really happens to all those reported missing each year.

My book is about an entire family that vanishes into thin air. One day they are there, the next – goneski. Of course, I know exactly what fate befell my fictional family, after all I wrote their story. But so many people go missing each year and are never heard from again. Where the hell do they go?

I saw a documentary once (I love the Discovery Channel – too much I think) that explained about different dimensions. They are these worlds that exist simultaneously with ours and yet separate. They compared it to tv channels. We are on one channel and the other dimensions are on different channels. We only see our dimension because we’re on our channel only. You can’t watch more than one station at a time. This program went on to say that missing people might be slipping through portals to another dimension. Because we don’t understand the dimensions, they can’t get back and we can’t follow them there. Hmm, interesting theory. Who knows? It may very well be true.

As a mystery writer, I can normally think of many other explanations. The mob, a serial killer, running away, fake your own death etc. They don’t exactly have the same ring to it, but just as likely. Perhaps I’ll start writing science fiction one day and incorporate another dimension. Anything is possible.

A distant relative of mine went missing many years ago. They still haven’t been found about twenty years on but his family have never given up the search. It’s a good story with claims of witchcraft involvement, but still terribly sad. It’s not the person that goes missing that suffers the most, it’s the family. It’s unbearably difficult to live with

In The Vanishing Family, they leave nothing but questions. The relatives are left to pick up the pieces after the family disappears. With the sister-in-law suffering her own problems, she now has to deal with tracking them down too. Where do you even start with trying to find someone? What if they left intentionally and don’t want to be found? What if someone forced them to leave and they are in grave danger? Nothing left but questions.

So, try and stay on the radar people. Don’t disappear, got it? People worry about you, trust me. And if you did vanish, you won’t be around for the release of The Vanishing Family. Incentive enough.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I think that you should write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but usually folks
    don’t speak about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!

    18 Apr 2013

    Aw, this was a really good post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
