What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was approached by Fight Card Books to try my hand at a tale featuring the boxing ability of Holmes as mentioned in the original tales. As I have been writing Sherlock Holmes stories for awhile (and winning awards for them), I was eager to explore this unexplored aspect of the Holmes mystic.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson have been in the public domain for awhile and they are incredible characters this author has had a blast writing. The villains in the tale are a combination of personal, pop culture influences.
