Blame it on Sidney Paget!

My first introduction to Sherlock Holmes was when I was about 10 years old and my dad read The Hound of the Baskervilles out loud to us. Scared the living daylights out of me, but I loved it. Soon after, I devoted a summer to reading through all the Sherlock Holmes books and what can I say, I’ve been into murder, mystery and mayhem ever since.
I always liked Sherlock as a character, of course–but Sidney Paget (who was a big influnce on me as a kid) made him look SO cool. I dunno, maybe it was the cheekbones. *shrug*
