I was born in Springhill Nova Scotia to David and Wendy Porter. Through most of my life I have dreamed of publishing my own works, since as far back as I can remember I have always created stories in my mind, and on rare occasion shared them with others.
My first work The Count of Samerand and The Ghost of Belgravia is a homage to Sir Aruther Conan Doyle and his Sherlock Holmes series. Though the count has deliberatively different character traits.
The case opens with the young Edward Derby missing with a sizable portion of his employers money. With all the signs pointing to Edward can even the Count of Samerand discover the truth or uncover the larger mystery surrounding his disappearance?
The Count of Samerand is investigating the disappearance of young William Bathurst, the son of a duke. At the same time Inspector James Wright is investigating the murder of a man with the same description as the young man. The victim is found in the slums of London, if it is the same man what was he doing in such a place dressed so humbly, and can the count find the truth.
Contacted by an old acquittance of the female persuasion, in hopes that he might be able to shed light on the events surrounding her husband's death. The Count of Samerand quickly finds himself as the prime suspect in this grave affair. Can he prove his innocent or will he be hanged for a crime he didn't commit.
The Count of Samerand is the final authority on crime, so much so that inspector James Wright of Scotland Yard has felt it necessary to bring eccentric count in on many a case. It is through these dealings and their unique meeting that the good inspector has to rely and even admire the count. In his later years he picks up his pen to defend this unique man, when the count is no longer able to.
