"the sister of Vernet, the French artist" [GREE]

Did you ever have a chance to talk with someone with whom you immediately felt a connection? That's exactly how Bonnie MacBird impressed us when we chatted with her about her new book Art in the Blood in this latest interview episode of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.

From her most amazing experience on her recent book tour to her first meeting with Sherlock Holmes (at a remarkable age!), to how she found her inspiration for the novel, Bonnie shares her very considered and unique perspective on the immortal detective. Listen in to hear about an artist's temperament and how it affects the craft, including her other mediums, and how she intended to bring Sherlock Holmes to her readers through her own personal Sherlockian inspirations.

Our Gas Lamp is inspired by a comment from Nick Martorelli and is taken from The Baker Street Journal Vol. 6, No. 3 (1956), in which Edgar Smith wrote "On Canonicity."

Listen closely and you may hear who our next interview guest is. And remain on the lookout for our regular Easter Egg feature.

As a reminder, consider supporting our show through Patreon, for as little as $1 per episode.

And thank you to Mary Miller and Christian Mongaard for your extraordinary support!
