David Ruffle was born in Northamptonshire in the UK at an early age in 1956,yes..a long time ago. The school years passed by in a blur, or was he the blur ? He managed to extricate himself from the education system at 15 years of age and embarked on the adventure of life.

Eventually, said adventure took him to Dorset and the beautiful town of Lyme Regis in July of 2004.He felt immediately at home here and surprised himself by starting to write...first, poetry and later ghost stories. All the time he felt that Lyme Regis would be a perfect place for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson to have an adventure, any kind of adventure ! And so...Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror was born. The story continues.

David is now with the MX publishing tea

Another excerpt from Watson: My Life

‘John, Henry is dead. He fell heavily down the stairs after coming home drunk. Lily found him the next morning, lying there with his neck broken. I am truly sorry, John.’ While Josiah recited this sad news to me, Irene was weeping uncontrollably, her face crumpled by grief. But, grief for my brother? I could hardly imagine that. But? ‘My God…Lily…why is she n... Read more of this blog post »

Liz Thank you for your friend invite!! :)


Rosaline Hi David, thanks for the friend invite. Should I be worried that I can be found so easily? ;D


★ Belle The Bibliophile ★ Hello David. Thanks for the friend invite and the book recommendation! I've seen that book once or twice but wasn't tempted to pick it up. But I'll think about it.


✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans) Thanks for the add, David! Can't wait to chat books with you:)

4triplezed Thanks for the invite David. I note we have a few history books in common. My first love is history. What a great part of the world to live in, Lyme Regis. My wife and I stayed overnight at a B@B back in Xmas 2000 when we made a visit to the UK. My wife still has a rather ragged T-shirt of the jazz festival we got from a pub we had a feed at. We never made the jazz festival but at least have the t-shirt. I recall the cobb being so windy we could not go out onto it. Will make it back one day.
