Sherlockian Interview - David MacGregor

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 (2nd April) it's David MacGregor.

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

I live in Michigan, about an hour from Detroit, where I teach writing classes at Wayne State University. I am a professional playwright. play soccer and golf, and specialize in keeping a Scottish Terrier (MacDuff) and a West Highland Terrier (Boswell) happy.


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

My story is "Death of a Mudlark." Mudlarking is an activity practiced on the banks of the Thames River, where the tides regularly deposit a wide variety of modern and ancient artifacts on the foreshore. It can be a fascinating, profitable, and occasionally deadly activity.


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

My newest full-length play, The Antichrist Cometh, premiered earlier this year at The Purple Rose Theatre in Michigan. It's a dark comedy about a regular, everyday chap, who begins to suspect that he might be the Antichrist.

I also have three Sherlock Holmes plays appearing in various parts of the world this year (e.g., Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, and New Zealand).

You can find all David's books on the David MacGregor Amazon Profile.
