Riley J. Froud is truly a wonder to behold. No, honestly, she really is. Originally from the Welsh seaside, she now lives in the French countryside, where she runs a small village bar with her husband Roy and their dog, George.When not working, she spends her time writing and wondering. Mostly wondering, actually. The writing tries to muscle in whilst the mind wanders. She started out writing serious stories until she realised that she just can’t keep a straight face and hence, a whole bunch of Underlings were born.Visit Riley J’s Facebook Page to see all the general nonsense she posts, and don’t forget to visit her blog to get dragged through an eye-rolling, jaw-flapping, thigh-slapping world of magic and mayhem.

    Ignatius was an avowed spiritualist. Somewhat at odds with the logical sensibilities of Holmes with which we tend to associate him.
    “He travelled to Australia and New Zealand on spiritualist missionary work in 1920.”
    He remained a steadfast spiritualist until his death, refusing to change his beliefs despite numerous frauds being exposed. He was unable to apply Holmesian discernment and penetration to these frauds. A peculiarity. He had many public and high profile disputes in this regard, including with Houdini, who he believed had supernatural powers, despite Houdini’s insistence to the contrary. Houdini even performed an illusion for Ignatius at his home, but he refused to believe it was an illusion despite assurances by Houdini that it was so.

    We tend to associate authors with their works, when sometimes they are nothing like them in the least.
