Name: Lyndsay Faye
Hails From: Manhattan
About Me: I write historical thrillers and Sherlockian pastiches, seek secondhand pretty dresses, and yammer endlessly about the Great Detective and the Good Doctor. I’m also a member of the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars.
How I First Encountered Sherlock Holmes: My dad told me to read “The Speckled Band” when I was ten. Then I kept reading them. I haven’t quite got around to stopping yet.
Favourite Character: Dr. John Hamish “Three Continents” Watson
Favourite Story: That is the cruelest question I have ever seen. Fine, “Charles Augustus Milverton.” Fine.
Favourite Adaptation: BBC Sherlock, although I’ve a very soft spot for David Burke.
One Random Fact: My friend played the Granada theme on the viola during the candle ceremony at my wedding.
