Sherlockian Interview - Brenda Seabrooke

Posted by Steve Emecz on

With the upcoming launch of volumes 43-45 of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories (currently on Kickstarter), we're talking to the authors involved. Today it's Brenda Seabrooke.

Tell us a little about yourself – Where you live and your main hobbies.

I live on the west side of the Shenandoah National Park mountain close to a lot of wildlife: foxes, opossums, deer, park bears, raccoons. I like to garden but these wild ones present challenges: the deer eat this, the bears eat that, etc. I have pets: a dog, a cat and 3 hens: Jet, Professor, and Rhodie.

What’s the name of your story in this collection, and what is it about (with no spoilers)?

The Case at the Turkish Bath is my twentieth Sherlock Holmes pastiche. It’s about a spa Holmes and Watson have been asked to look into and find the motive behind petty thefts. They go incognito with Watson pretending to be an invalid in need of treatment and Holmes serving as his attendant.

What other projects have you recently completed that we can check out?

I completed a collection of eight stories last year called Sherlock Holmes: The Persian Slipper and Other Stories and I’ve just compiled a collection of ten more stories, The Crimson Trail and Other Stories to be published in September.
