Literary Fiction



Vanishing Point made the rounds with an agent to eighteen publishers. The novel received "favorable" rejections but ultimately no contract. If you are interested in hearing more about this book, please contact me.

Vanishing Point is the story of Carolyn Trevor De Luca, who is struggling with three unresolved issues: her brother’s mysterious death, a recent miscarriage, and her own ambivalence about marriage and family. Haunted by dreams of her brother Andrew, Carolyn decides to travel alone to the location of Andrew’s death, her family’s remote summer home on Manitoulin Island.

There she comes in contact with a wildlife biologist, Graham Marshall, a man she suspects was her brother’s lover. Graham Marshall is the one person who knows what happened to Andrew, but he alternates between helping Carolyn and toying with her.

As she unravels the mysteries surrounding Andrew's death and inexplicably finds herself attracted to Graham, she discovers how her deep attachment to her brother has affected her life and ability to love. Carolyn realizes that she will not be able to fully love her husband or consider having a child until she has "let go" of her brother.

The 65,000-word novel, told in three parts, is about love in its many manifestations, about the fluidity of sexual attraction, and about giving with one’s whole heart. A central theme of the novel is based on a Native American Trickster tale about the need to give generously and forever. During her three weeks on Manitoulin Island, Carolyn discovers that she, like the coyote trickster, has much to learn about love and generosity. Throughout the book, recurring images of animals, particularly coyotes, loons, and hummingbirds, unite past with present and provide Carolyn with clues about Andrew's life and death

Reader Reviews for "Vanishing Point"

Reviewed by S. Thompson 12/27/2003
Hello MCD. Hey, I may be just a reader but "Vanishing Point" sounds like a real winner to me. I hope you find a publisher and real soon....I can't wait to read it!

I read your other write "Queen of the Air" and liked it as well. I think you have a bright future in writing ahead of you. Good Luck!
