/ -- If you like the popular television series 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' and C.S. Lewis, then you'll enjoy the works of Dr. Barbara Golder. As a physician, medical examiner, attorney, and bioethicist in the secular world for over 40 years, Barbara Golder is combining her Catholic faith with her front-line experiences, as she now focuses on speaking and writing from a Catholic perspective.
Golder served for four years on the USCCB's National Advisory Committee and earned a National Catholic Certification in Healthcare Ethics from the National Catholic Bioethics Center. Her experience with forensic investigation and law helped lead her to creating gripping and believable mysteries with characters that are simply living their Catholic faith as life unfolds. Her highly acclaimed series, 'The Lady Doc Murders,' has received rave reviews
. "It is rare indeed to find an author who not only tells a good story but writes with real literary flair. Barbara Golder is such an author. We find the plot twists and twisted characters that one would expect in a good murder mystery, but also the fine character development and deep insight into the human condition which separates the truly great mysteries from the run of the mill," says Joseph Pearce, Author of 'The Quest for Shakespeare.'
"I use storytelling to introduce some important ideas about God and faith in a way that isn't quite so threatening to people who are not of faith," says Golder, who just released her second book in this series, 'Dying for Compassion,' published by Full Quiver Press, following 'Dying for Revenge,' which released last year.
As a Jewish convert and former Episcopalian and Methodist, Golder has appeared on EWTN's 'The Journey Home' with Marcus Grodi, 'EWTN Bookmark' with Doug Keck. Golder blogs at 'Catholic365.com'
, and is a new weekly writer for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles' 'Angelus News,' where she addressed the Charlie Gard case
from a Catholic perspective.
Golder is the Director of Adult Faith Formation and Evangelization at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul in Chattanooga, TN and is the keynote speaker for this year's national Catholic Writers Guild Live Conference, taking place in Chicago from July 19th-21st.
