Retrieved 8 February She died at age ninety-six on December 21, , on the same day as her only son. On the solstice of , during a rare family reunion, Marlena Bellum, our mother, was told Cassandra's secret story and ultimately decided to continue with her unexpected pregnancy. This solstice is a marker for me.
Today I finished the second book and am beginning work on the third. The end is in sight. I began composing the books as an adolescent, soon after I discovered mother's journals in a folder entitled "The Pink House" at the bottom of an old trunk in our attic. We were living exclusively in Alta, Wyoming then, and my idea was to memorialize our family history for posterity. It was about the same time the trouble began between mother and my twin brother, and after a while I put away the project. I had formed the writing habit at an early age. I began talking with the dead at two, writing down their stories at three, and reciting them from memory at five.
As a result, I blush to say, our mother pronounced me "a prodigy with an old soul. These days, it is not that uncommon for teens to publish fan-based fiction, and I am no longer a precocious redheaded adolescent though I am still red-haired. On the first book's publication date I turned thirty-four, along with my twin brother Gordie, whom Grammie once described as "gloomy, grand, and damned peculiar.
Grammie Bellum is dead serious in her opinions, and I love her too much ever to contradict her. I would give an arm for her. I love everyone in my family that way. Sometimes it is a chore to love them so deeply, but when I think about the alternatives, they are not so good.
There is too much hate in the world and lots of room for unconditional love. I often give my readers that advice, but I wonder if they take it. My day job is writing an advice column for young women. My monthly column first appeared a decade ago as a hoax.

Here is how that went down. I wrote a private letter containing heartfelt advice to a desperate friend back in Wyoming, that was filched by my prankster brother from the mailbox at Sally Honeywell's mansion in Key West, where we were staying. Gordie typed its content into a "Dear Abby" format, falsely attributed authorship to local psychic Sioux May, and sent it to the city desk editor of the Key West Citizen. The editor was on deadline, and she published the column without checking with Sioux May.
Even after the hoax was disclosed, the readership refused to go away. My column is named after a tropical plant that derives its nourishment from air. Full disclosure: my books are not derived from thin air. That trick is seriously difficult to pull off. It was co-authored by our mother and her mentor, our dearest old cousin, Dr. Chloe Vye. They wrote their book while Gordie and I were in utero. It is part psychology and part home-building advice; a must-read for architects, who spend as much time handholding their clients as they do designing rooms for them, according to mother.
My books are part family history and part bildungsroman.
