Sherlockian Author Profile - Thomas Turley

Thomas A. (Tom) Turley has been "hooked on Holmes" since about the age of twelve. He has a Ph.D. in British history but spent most of his career as an archivist with the State of Alabama. Approaching retirement, Tom returned to a youthful hobby: writing fiction. His pastiche "Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Tainted Canister" (2014) is available as an e-book and audiobook from MX Publishing. It was also published in The Art of Sherlock Holmes-USA Edition 1 (2019), illustrated by a painting from artist Angela Fegan.

Previously, Tom has had stories published in Parts VI, VII, XVIII, XIX, and XXVII of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories. One of them, "A Ghost from Christmas Past," also appeared in The Art of Sherlock Holmes, West Palm Beach Edition (2019), paired with a painting by artist Nuné Asatryan. Tom's new collection of historical pastiches, Sherlock Holmes and the Crowned Heads of Europe, was published by MX in 2021. More about Tom at
