Today we meet David E. Feldman, author of The Dora Ellison Mystery Series, a 5-book (so far) series starring a detective couple who happens to be lesbian. Dora is a sweet martial arts savant with a violent streak stemming from childhood trauma. She especially loathes bullies.
Feldman is also author of The Neighborhood, a novel about four families in the then-all-white town of Valley Stream, N.Y., one of whom is the first family of color in the neighborhood. His stories are about love, transcendence, hope, and overcoming challenges in modern society.
We also discuss:
Bullies in fiction and real life
Victims in his books: are everyday people in everyday situations. A ubiquitous situation we have is people who are abused, from a young couple making love, to people who happen to be in the hospital, to several people who identify as different genders.
