Sherlock Holmes often relied upon a gang of adolescent boys and girls he recruited from the London slums—his irregulars. The most beloved member of these street Arabs was Tessa Wiggins. Holmes’s relationship with her and the other irregulars has largely been an untold story . . . until now.

Irregular Lives begins in post-WWI London, as Holmes retires. A mysterious photography exhibit catapults him back in time to early experiences with Tessa, Ugly, Snape and other members if his urban army. But his reminiscences are merely a prelude to a thrilling adventure that begins when a jolly reunion with the irregulars erupts in tragedy.

Though set in 1919, The Celtic Phoenix is steeped in the enigmatic culture of the ancient Celts—where women are the equal to men as warriors, priests, and poets. The Celtic Phoenix is the journey of three women who rise from the ashes of their past and shake the rational foundations upon Sherlock Holmes built his life and career.

The Magnificent Madness of Tessa Wiggins finds Tessa struggling with the adopted spirit of a Druid priestess teaching her how to be the servant of The Earth Mother. When Tessa defies treatment, her lover asks her childhood friend, Sherlock Holmes, to intervene. But despite everyone’s best intentions, Tessa finds herself in an asylum that drives her toward a final breaking point on All-Halloween.

If you have ever wondered who followed in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes, this book is for you.
