Gritty crime fiction writer, Dharma Kelleher joins us to talk about her experience as a transgender author, and the recent controversy around the book deal for the fictional biography of transgender doctor, Dr. James Barry. We discuss the importance of sensitivity readers and how/when an author should employ them in their writing process. Dharma also sheds some light on marketing a title that was deemed “unmarketable.”
