"I should like to see a sister of mine" [COPP]
The name Enola Holmes ought to be familiar to most Sherlockians by now. Aside from her appearance in six books, on September 23, 2020, the youngest Holmes sibling makes her debut on Netflix.
Nancy Springer author of the Enola Holmes series, joined us to talk about how her creation sprang to life and where she finds her strength. We go so far as to uncover the true identity of her inspiration and hear about how Millie Bobby Brown herself was the sparking plug behind bringing this young heroine to the screen.
Along the way, we discover a fascinating personal and professional journey of Ms. Springer, about whom we can unequivocally say is one of the most reflective, thoughtful, and self-aware authors we've had a chance to interview. You won't want to miss her backstory and discussions of her other works such as I Am Mordred, Rowan Hood: Outlaw Girl of Sherwood Forest, and of course the Enola Holmes Mysteries.
Happy 200th to us. We'll be planning something just for our Patreon/PayPal supporters in the near future - be sure to tune in. And we have the latest round of Canonical Couplets. The prize this time around is an original copy of The Case of the Missing Marquess (an Enola Holmes Mystery). Entries are due by 11:59 pm EDT on September 29, 2020.
