How to find a snowman......

Call for Sherlock Holmes of course! In the course of a Christmas writing challenge on www.holmesian.net in 2010 I came up with a short piece entitled 'Henrietta's Problem'. It was recieved quite well and when the 2nd Edition of 'Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror' was published by MX Publishing in late 2011, I added the story to the expanded content. A fair few reviews of the book singled out 'Henrietta's Problem' for praise and when I re-read it, I was struck by the thought that it would make a lovely illustrated story for children. Fortunately in Lyme Regis, we have Rikey Austin in out midst, a children's writer and illustrator and she agreed to come in on the project with me and illustrate the now slightly re-written story (originally it was narrated by Watson, but is now narrated by a third party. In a few weeks we will see the fruits of our labours and we are quite excited about the interest already shown it.

Ladies and Gentlemen: I give you, 'Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Snowman...
