“a child has done the horrid thing” [SIGN]
Bonnie MacBird, BSI ("Art In the Blood") is back with her fifth Sherlock Holmes novel.
This time, we're treated to a Christmas tale in What Child Is This?, where we encounter a kidnapped three-year-old and a missing son of an aristocrat, with Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Heffie O'Malley at the center of it call.
Bonnie shares her writing process with us, discusses how it changed during the pandemic, and what it was like collaborating with artist Frank Cho, BSI ("The Duke of Balmoral") on the heroic illustrations he provided for the book.
