I once moderated a mystery conference panel where the audience and the panelists got into a lively discussion about who has the right to write about whom. In other words, is it legitimate to write from the POV of a character whose gender, race, sexual identity, socioeconomic class, or some other identifying factor is different from your own? Your books demonstrate that not only is it legit, it can make for fine and insightful reading.
