I always loved how the stories were about Holmes but written by Watson, the entire breadth of their investigative experience told from his perspective. I wanted to see how they lived, though, more than simply being limited to how they worked; know the characters as more than detective and doctor. I could either make my own characters based on those tropes or not bother with pretenses and work with the characters I already loved. I chose the later. It was also important to me to provide another take on Watson which was just as dark and complicated as Holmes, neither the moralistic doctor nor obliging lady's man. (less)

The lesson I learned was that life will tell you when it's time to write--whether or not its opportune or appropriate. If I am having trouble writing, then I stop and do something else. In that same way, if my mind bids me to write, I will stop and write. Writing, for me, is an organic thing that shouldn't be forced or constrained. Because of this, I find I encounter writer's block very infrequently.(less)

Niko Ford liked a quote

“Here dwell together still two men of note
Who never lived and so can never die:
How very near they seem, yet how remote
That age before the world went all awry.
But still the game’s afoot for those with ears
Attuned to catch the distant view-halloo:
England is England yet, for all our fears–
Only those things the heart believes are true.

A yellow fog swirls past the window-pane
As night descends upon this fabled street:
A lonely hansom splashes through the rain,
The ghostly gas lamps fail at twenty feet.
Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
And it is always eighteen ninety-five.”
