When did you first start writing?
I first started writing after I found Nancy Drew. At first, I wanted to be a famous girl detective, but later I wanted to be the person who wrote the books about famous, girl detectives. I did, eventually, have a couple of short mystery stories published, including one about another famous detective, Sherlock Holmes. When a fellow writer and I collaborated on an anthology of short stories for boys, young Sherlock turned up to help Scotland Yard solve a mystery.
