Michelle Birkby has always loved crime stories, and read her first Sherlock Holmes book when she was thirteen. She was given a beautiful collection of all the short stories and has been hooked with the wonderful, gas-lit, atmospheric world of crime and adventure ever since. A few years ago Michelle was re-reading The Empty House and a blurred figure in the background suddenly came into focus. It became clear to her that Mrs Hudson was much more than a housekeeper to 221b and she'd always been fascinated by Mary Watson's character. So she set about giving the women of Baker Street a voice and adventures of their own . . . The House at Baker Street is the first book in the exciting Mrs Hudson and Mary Watson Investigations.
TheCrime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards have been synonymous with quality crime writing for over fifty years.
Michelle Birkby, author of The House at Baker Street, explains how the female characters are often the overlooked heroines of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories.
