Steven Doyle became a Sherlockian at the age of 14, when his parents gave him a copy of THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES for Christmas. Doyle is a member of The Baker Street Irregulars, as well as several other Sherlock Holmes societies. He's had a long career in Sherlockian publishing. In 1987, Doyle founded and edited the quarterly journal, THE SHERLOCK HOLMES REVIEW. This critically acclaimed periodical ran for 10 years. In 1992 he cofounded Wessex Press, a high-quality small press specializing in Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle, and other topics of interest. Wessex Press (and its imprint, Gasogene Books) is the premier Sherlockian publisher in the world. Finally, in 2008, Steven Doyle assumed the role of publisher for THE BAKER STREET JOURNAL, the offical quarterly publication of the Baker Street Irregulars. He's also authored countless essays and articles, and edited or co-edited six books on Sherlock Holmes, including SHERLOCK HOLMES FOR DUMMIES. He lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with his wife, Pamela, and their three cats.
