Elaine Feuer is the CEO of Blue Danube Publishing. Her new book, Chaya's Angels: A Spiritual Journey with Down Syndrome, co-authored with Chaya Ben Baruch, is available for purchase. When Chaya Ben Baruch gave birth to her sixth child, a son with Down syndrome, she led her family on a spiritual journey, moving from Alaska to Israel, and adopting more children with special needs, on the way. It is our aspiration for the reader to appreciate the uniqueness and joy that Chaya and her husband, Yisroel, have experienced as parents of children with Downs, and to open the hearts of people, across the globe.
Elaine is the author of Traveling In and Out of Heaven. Her new book, Traveling In and Out of Heaven, is the story of her brother’s five-month battle against esophageal cancer, encompassing: the profound love between a brother and sister as they struggle with the torment of an unbearable illness; the love and support of family and friends; and the treacherous betrayal of a daughter. The poignant and agonizing issues in this narrative are circumstances that readers could encounter at some point in their lifetime: an unsigned medical proxy; next-of-kin power over medical decisions; life support; and a duplicitous legal petition. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop!
Elaine also wrote the critically acclaimed exposé, Innocent Casualties: The FDA’s War Against Humanity – which is now available in its fourth edition as an eBook: Irene Alleger, editor for Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients wrote: “Innocent Casualties manages to make the blood boil in righteous anger, because it makes the FDA’s abuse of power so personal… Ms. Feuer takes the reader step-by-step through the nonsensical tactics, deceit, and police mentality.”
Blue Danube recently published an enthralling new memoir, The Last Waltz: Love, Death & Betrayal by Professor Sean Davison. In 2006, Sean cared for his terminally ill mother, Pat Ferguson (a psychiatrist), during the final three months of her life. The Last Waltz is a true story about the extraordinary love between a mother and son, and how their informed decisions lead to unforeseen consequences: A sister betrays her brother; a son is charged with murder; Archbishop Desmond Tutu requests bail, igniting a public debate about voluntary euthanasia and the right-to- die in South Africa, New Zealand, and in countries across the globe.
Elaine has worked in the medical division of Little, Brown & Company and freelanced as a research and development coordinator for a variety of film and television projects, including the critically acclaimed films, Imagine: John Lennon; 25 x 5: The Continuing Adventure of the Rolling Stones; Elvis: The Great Performances; Learned Pigs & Fireproof Women. Elaine obtained history and criminology degrees – “Graduating With Distinction” – from the University of Toronto; received “Academic Excellence in Editing” from the University of Massachusetts, Boston; and was an “Ontario Scholar.”
