Today we talk to DJ Tyrer who appears in Part XLII: 1895-1903 currently on Kickstarter as part of the MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories XL to XLII campaign.
What’s the name of your story in the collection?
The title of my story is The Mulberry Frock Coat Mystery, which, whilst referencing an element integral to the mystery, will, I hope, leave readers guessing at what exactly is happening and why.
Where did you first discover Holmes?
The earliest Holmes story I can just dimly recall reading was the Ladybird Children’s Classics adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Although it was, obviously, greatly simplified, it struck a chord with me and the story remains one of my favourites to this day.
Do you write on any other subjects?
I write short fiction in a number of genres, but primarily horror and weird fiction, especially involving the Yellow Mythos of Robert W. Chambers (which I have crossed over with Sherlock Holmes more than once), such as in volume 4 of Sherlock Holmes and the Occult Detectives from Belanger Books).
Where can fans find more about your work?
The best place to find out more about my writing is my website at DJTyrer which has details of my published work, as well as lists of stories with recurring characters (in case you want to see where others of my Holmes stories have been published). I also have a Facebook page at DJTyrer on Facebook.
