He was forced to sell a property to pay back the missing monies. In my family's mind, the other men were the true embezzlers. What made my grandfather sign the papers?

I have a penchant for vampires (there's a free story download about one on my Website). And I considered the type of mystery a vampire Sherlock Holmes would be called to do. Murdering a vampire would not be easy (they heal so quickly!), so that sort of mystery would interest Holmes in such a world. That's the nugget were my story "The Case of the Tainted Blood" in Curious Incidents began.(less)

How I Came to Write #Essays about #Sherlock Holmes #MFRWhooks

I never set out to publish a series of essays on Sherlock Holmes, but as a trained social scientist, it evolved naturally. When I began my first book in The Early Case Files of Sherlock Holmes (The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife), I knew Sherlock had said, “my ancestors were country squires.” I had to know what life was like for a country squire to be able to write about Sherlock’s early life.
