About the Author

Craig Stephen Copland is a native of Toronto and, a long time ago, was an English major who studied under both Northrup Frye and Marshall McLuhan at the University of Toronto. In May of 2014, the Sherlock Holmes Society of Canada - better known as The Bootmakers (www.torontobootmakers.com) - announced a contest for a new Sherlock Holmes story. Although he had no experience writing fiction, the author submitted a short Sherlock Holmes mystery and was blessed to be declared one of the winners. Thus inspired, he has continued to write new Sherlock Holmes mysteries since. He created the legendary detective of the American West, The Reverend Mister Ezekiel Black, so that the science of deduction could be transferred to the days of the frontier. He is on a mission to write a tribute Sherlock Holmes story and a Reverend Ezekiel Black story for every one in the Sherlockian Canon. He currently writes from Toronto, Tokyo, and Manhattan and can be reached at CraigStephenCopland@gmail.com. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Dear fellow Sherlockians: It's elementary, my dear reader. What else, after fifty years of enjoying the stories of Sherlock Holmes, is a recently retired gentleman to do with his time but write more stories about the world's most beloved detective?

Craig Stephen Copland confesses that he discovered Sherlock Holmes when, some time in the muddled early 1960s he pinched his older brother's copy of the immortal stories and was forever afterward thoroughly hooked. He is very grateful to his high school English teachers in Toronto who inculcated in him a love of literature and writing, and even inspired him to be an English major at the University of Toronto. There he was blessed to sit at the feet of both Northrup Frye and Marshall McLuhan, and other great literary professors, who led him to believe that he was called to be a high school English teacher.

It was his good fortune to come to his pecuniary senses, abandon that goal and pursue a varied professional career that took him to over one hundred countries and endless adventures. He considers himself to have been and to continue to be one of the luckiest men on God's good earth.

A few years back he took a step in the direction of Sherlockian studies and joined the Sherlock Holmes Society of Canada--also known as the Toronto Bootmakers. In May of 2014 this esteemed group of scholars announced a contest for the writing of a new Sherlock Holmes mystery. Although he had never tried his hand at fiction before, Craig entered and was pleasantly surprised to be selected as one of the winners. Having enjoyed the experience he decided to write more of the same, and is now on a mission to write a new Sherlock Holmes mystery that is related to and inspired by each of the sixty stories in the original Canon.

He currently lives and writes in Toronto, Buenos Aires, New York, and the Okanagan Valley and looks forward to finally settling down when he turns ninety.
