Nerdgirl Interview

From My interview with Nerdgirl Official.

Where do you get your ideas?

I think it’s a vision problem. I have a cock-eyed view of the world. It’s like you’re slipping off a horse, and then you notice it’s got wings and no it’s a camel, it’s a mule, it’s a gryphon, it’s a pig, and then you notice it’s got wings, but the one constant is that you’re always falling.


I can't exactly tour the world right now, or even hold a book signing at the local, but if you've purchased a copy and you'd like it personalized,  just sign up on the left and I'll send you a free bookplate, which I think is rather charming.. I won't sell your email or your name or your address or anything else to anyone, not that I expect anyone to ask me. I just want to thank you for purchasing the book. Thanks!

(Unfortunately, only in the U.S. and Canada at this point.)

BiblioSanctum review

From The BiblioSanctum review:


"If you’re curious to see the world of Sherlock Holmes transformed in a way you’ve never seen before, you’ve got to check out The Strange Case of Eliza Doolittle. Well-written and well-conceived, this book has definitely earned the distinction of being one of the most intriguing and quirky literary mashups I’ve ever read! Not to be missed by fans of fun, creative reimaginings of classic characters and stories."


"A gripping, hugely entertaining and very satisfying read." — Booklist, Starred Review on Timothy Miller's THE STRANGE CASE OF ELIZA DOOLITTLE. Have you read this one?

Historical Novel Socirey Review

New review, this from the Historical Novel Society: "...the plot is full of surprises sure to satisfy any Holmes aficionado, and the ending is quite affecting."

"Aside from the philosophical underpinnings of the book, the plot is full of surprises sure to satisfy any Holmes aficionado, and the ending is quite affecting. But to my mind the irresistible charm of the book lies in sentences such as this: “In lieu of shaking his hand, I knocked on Dr. Strachey’s mahogany desktop like an aboriginal drummer sending signals from one village to the next.”

Flat on My Back and Writing in My Head: On Writing My Book After a Stroke (and Believing I Was Sherlock Holmes)

A little bit about a bump along the road for this first book, and the genesis for my third.

"Nevertheless, I woke up, five weeks later, a little fuzzy in the brain. I had the strange impression that I was really Sherlock Holmes and that Sherlock Holmes was actually me, and there would be hell to pay when someone found out."

Dancing Men

 I decided I should give you a little sample of my novel, The Strange Case of Eliza Doolittle, to whet your appetite. This is from the first paragraph. Enjoy!
