Chills and Thrills Coming to M is for Mystery
AUGUSTA, Ga.—Mystery, suspense and drama will lurk in the shadows of San Mateo when Jessica Swan, author of Dear Isabelle, gives a talk and signs copies of her book July 29, 2-3:30 p.m. at M is for Mystery, 86 East Third Avenue, San Mateo.
Dear Isabelle is a novel of psychological terror that culminates in shocking multiple plot twists. Swan makes the story of Isabelle, a troubled college student, come to life vividly by creating a beautiful tapestry of mesmerizing images that evoke a series of multi-faceted layers. As Swan explains,“I’ve always been in love with the idea of approaching the actual writing of a manuscript in the same way that I approach the painting of my watercolor pictures: by layering. I wanted Dear Isabelle to resemble a kaleidoscope of different layers upon layers, so that the story would be rich in texture and could change and develop each time it is read.”
These rich layers conjured up by Swan tell the story of Isabelle Durant, a freshman at Seattle University. The emotional freshman’s world comes to a terrifying halt when her ex-boyfriend begins to stalk her. The dramatic pursuit that entails is fraught with threats and astonishing revelations, but the real thriller of this tale is the unforgettable ending. Swan is able to illuminate the conclusion with such finesse that the reader will be left stunned.
Swan grew up in Bakersfield and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric. In addition to writing two novels, she has also written magazine articles for Psychology Today and The Behavior Analyst. She lives in Belmont with her husband David, where she pursues her career as a professional writer.
