Gayle has written two short story collections with MX - The Folk Tale Mysteries. Jewel thefts, missing persons, even murder are all elements in the world of the great detective Sherlock Holmes. What connects the stories in these books is that the cases he and his biographer Dr. John H. Watson investigate are based on adventures beloved of childhood. In a novel twist to the usual Holmes pastiches, Mrs. Puhl has based her plots involving Mr. Sherlock Holmes on folk tales, nursery rhymes and other snippets of children's literature.
Gayle's new book 'Sherlockian Stories and Studies' Include her well-reviewed “Colonel Warburton’s Madness” and “The Blood-Splattered Bridge,” plus other entertaining adventures. Essays on various Sherlockian subjects are also covered.
