An Interview with Claire Daines Claire Daines has just had her first Sherlock Holmes novel published and I caught up with her recently. I very often find it hard to find the time to write, but you have a young family, now extended by one to care for. How do you find the time? I hold it up at gunpoint! It helps that the three eldest are at school and pre-school five days a week, and I’ve gotten very good at typing one-handed with the baby on my knee. Are you a structured writer, writing at a set time and...

” Sherlock Holmes seems to be on everyone’s mind lately… including Amy Thomas’. She’s recently released a book entitled The Detective and the Woman, a tale of Holmes’ interactions with Irene Adler. Following my review of her novel, I got to chat with Amy, who provided some brilliant insights into Doyle’s stories. The Sherlock Holmes stories seem to be experiencing a particular boom of popularity lately, with the films and numerous TV series. Why, do you think, is Sherlock Holmes so popular, and why has he endured? Sherlock Holmes has always had a wide fanbase, even during the years when he...

The British Library was the venue yesterday for a very special event - a live interview with Anthony Horowitz the author of the first new 'approved' Sherlock Holmes novel since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stopped writing Sherlock Holmes books nearly a century ago.

The audience thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minutes of questions and answers and Anthony answered dozens of very well prepared questions from Roger (with a little help from his wife Jean)...

“Imagine waking up to the rustle of a jungle wind and the howling of monkeys. Imagine a place where morning coffee doesn’t come from Starbucks and the nearest doctor is a three-day hike away, longer if it rains. Imagine navigating your way down a trail — where a hungry leopard could be lying in wait — just to use the bathroom. Imagine cobras, man-eating tigers and neighbors who decorate their homes with the human skulls they hollowed out the night before.” Extract from a Fascinating interview with Bea Swedien Under the red blanket is available from all good bookstores including Amazon...

Author Interviews, Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle -

We caught up with Charlie a couple of days before the paperback release of his debut Sherlock Holmes pastiche 'The Case of The Russian Chessboard'. Originally released on Amazon Kindle, this short novel has had rave reviews for its stark portrayal of a mystery involving Russian exiles. What led you to write a Sherlock Holmes pastiche? I thought I could do better than the ones I’d been reading! I remember reading June Thompson’s ‘Secret Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes’ and ‘Secret Files’ and thinking ‘What makes so many of these well-written stories so unsatisfying, compared to Conan Doyle?’ I did some...

Dicky Neely is an internationally recognised illustrator from Texas and life-long Sherlock Holmes fan. His first book, The Case of The Grave Accusation covers Sherlock Holme's most important mystery ever. We caught up with him in between scribblings to ask him about the book and his passion for Holmes. What was the main inspiration for the book? I was surfing the net some years ago and I came across the story about a man who was attempting to discredit Sir Arthur Conan Doyle concerning his authorship of the Hound of the Baskervilles as well as accusing him of wife stealing...

Dan Andriacco, D.Min., of Cincinnati, OH, USA, is a former journalist and mystery fiction reviewer. His book Baker Street Beat: An Eclectic Collection of Sherlockian Scribblings is a delightful grab bag of essays, short stories and radio plays, plus a helpful annotated bibliography.  We cornered him in his library (don't call it a collection) of Sherlock Holmes books to answer a few questions. What was the main inspiration for the book? I’m not sure, but it may have been our trip to the Reichenbach Falls in 2008. It was certainly around that time that I began to pull together various...

We caught up with Kate Workman from New Jersey ahead of the May launch of her debut novel 'Rendezvous at the Populaire' in which a badly injured Sherlock Holmes is coaxed out of retirement to tackle the Phantom of the Opera. Kate explains that pitting two literary giants against each other was too tempting to resist. What was the main inspiration for the book? My main inspiration for Rendezvous at the Populaire was simply that I love the idea of Holmes and the Phantom not only matching wits, but potentially joining forces.  They are both giants in the literary world...
