“Interesting, though elementary” [HOUN] 

Rob Nunn found the Sherlockian world not long ago, and since then, our impression of him is one not too far from the name of our show: "We hear of Rob Nunn everywhere."

From winning the coveted Beacon Award from the Beacon Society in recognition of his work in the classroom involving Sherlock Holmes, to his involvement in a number of Sherlockian Societies in the Midwest and the creation of Holmes in the Heartland, Rob has made his presence known. 

Nor does it end in the classroom or society meeting; Rob has contributed to I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere as a columnist, wrote The Criminal Mastermind of Baker Street (MX Publishing), and has another major writing project in the works.

But his most prolific work comes in the form of Interesting Though Elementary, a blog that grew out of his first book and evolved into regular interviews of — wait for it — interesting Sherlockians (although, as you'll find, that's redundant).

We have another Canonical Couplet after the interview. If you are chosen as a winner, you'll get a copy of Rob's book The Criminal Mastermind of Baker Street. Answers are due by July 29, 2021 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
