I read Working Parts by her and really liked it. This one's been on my list.

Watermark -- physical (old ones) and emotional scarring
Invisible Monsters -- traumatic disfigurement
Carousel -- severe emotional scarring (to the point of mutism, well until she got back on her feet)
Big Bang Symphony: A Novel of Antarctica -- frostbite and co-dependency issues
Ambereye -- prosthetic eye
Pleasure Set -- none but it's set in L.A., need I say more?
Truths -- rope burns
Command of Silence -- multiple personalities and as often as she blacked out, there must have been nicks and hematomas

And for my non-fiction book:
Captured: A True Story of Abductions by Indians on the Texas Frontier -- scalping

Your point is well taken, Sue. lol
