For your reading pleasure today, please visit Age 30+… A Lifetime of Books to read my thoughts on writing Sherlock Holmes and other famous literary characters, researching the Mary Russell books, and of course, Sherlockians.

    Laurie – Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I’m so excited about my reading this month as I work through the entire MR series. I’m almost finished with book 2 …

    This was such a delightful interview – some interesting insights to the difficulties and indignities of indepth research that you are compelled to undertake. It sounded truly arduous!

    I don’t want to complain. I really don’t. But in the first couple of books Russell was a great one for tucking into a meal, and yet now she only ever picks at her food. Could I just ask that you have the girl sitting down to a serious high tea. English, Welsh, Yorkshire or Devonshire, I’m not fussy. Now that really will need some committed research! And to show that I make this suggestion in the spirit of thoughtfullness, (rather than senseless nitpicking) I’m prepared to accompany you on a tour of The Good Cafes Of England. Anyone else out there want to join us?

    I’d love to get in on that, Ruthie, although I think my waistline would be seriously expanded.

    I’m loving this blog tour, the pieces are informative and a delight to read. I’m also loving the Fifteen Weeks of Bees campaign, so many things to enter, so little time.
