New book arrives from Wetaskiwin author

Lori Feldberg’s third in ‘Hercules and Big Bertha Mystery’ series

A Wetaskiwin author is excited about her third book published in her mystery series, “Hercules and Big Bertha.”

The book, “Case of the Dognapper’s folly,” is number three in Lori Feldberg’s series of a private investigator who gets help from her four-legged friend Hercules the dog.

“The stories are told from the POV of Hercules, leading to some humor, of course, since he sees things different than ‘his humans,’” stated Feldberg in a press release.

“What’s unique is that Hercules is a little throw-away dog who hooked up with a lady private investigator and bingo, he was embroiled in his first case as a Dog P.I. in ‘Case of the Duffle Bag Kids.’

“The newest book, ‘Case of Dognapper’s Folly,’ circles back to a character from that first book in the series, with ‘Case of Pop Up Ducks’ being the second in the series. Readers might recognize that the settings involve fictionalized local places called Falcon City, Peace Hills, Rose City, and the like.

“Interestingly, seniors are enthused over the dog stories, probably bringing back memories of their own ‘super’ dogs. My greatest fan, who lives in California, is 91 years old.”

Feldberg said writing has been a part of her life since the third grade. She said she got serious about writing a few times and now she’s a published author.

The hero of the series, Hercules, is actually based on a real dog, her cousin’s canine who lives in Camrose was the inspiration for Hercules. Feldberg said the idea for the dog detective just popped into her head.

If you’d like to meet Feldberg, talk to her about her books and even listen to some readings, she will holding a book signing at Value Drug Mart in Wetaskiwin May 23.

“My book event is at Value Drug Mart on Wednesday, May 23, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with readings on the hour,” stated Feldberg.

“I will have on hand all of my books which include a children’s duo, a farm humor trilogy, and the Hercules and Big Bertha Mystery series. All are ‘family friendly’ reading, with the Dog P.I. series being for young adult and older.”
