Occasionally big issues, like sexual abuse, are tackled through fiction - all the better when enhanced through an alternative detective approach. In St. Mary's Private Dancer, Blair Hull explores the underworld of sex work in a murder mystery, and in Quaker Witness the issues are sexual harassment, rape, & murder, written by E. Kirsten Peters under the pen-name Irene Allen. Kirsten's Ph.D. is in Geology and her books include The Whole Story of Climate: What Science Reveals About The Nature of Endless Change, while Blair is a writer, singer of folk music and jazz standards, pastor at the Congregational UCC in Whitewater, WI, and participates in the UW-Madison Write-by-the-Lake Writer's Workshop & Retreat.
