Today's author profile from The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Volumes XIX to XXI (now on Kickstarter) is Paula Hammond.   Paula's Favourite quote from The Canon:    There are so many wonderful moments in The Canon but perhaps my favorite comes from “The Final Problem”, when Moriarty visits Holmes in his rooms.

Holmes had become the subject of a well-received play – by the public if not the critics – that opened in 1899 and, after a long run at New York's Garrick Theater, was taken on a nationwide tour across the United States.
