Bonnie MacBird

Bonnie MacBird writes the acclaimed Sherlock Holmes Adventure Series for HarperCollins. Originally raised in San Francisco, Bonnie fell in love with Holmes at the age of ten. After earning a BA in Music and an MA in film at Stanford University she moved to Hollywood, where she spent thirty years in show business - as a feature film development executive for Universal Studios, a screenwriter (original writer of Tron) and an Emmy-winning documentary producer. She also taught screenwriting at UCLA Extension’s famous Writers’ Program for eleven years. Along the way she studied Shakespeare at Oxford, Improv with Second City, did some acting and audiobook narrating. She travelled frequently to London to research her Victorian crime thrillers, and now lives right off Baker Street with her husband, scientist Alan Kay.

Her Sherlock Holmes books, written in traditional style, have been translated into fourteen languages and include: Art in the Blood, Unquiet Spirits, The Devil’s Due, The Three Locks and What Child Is This? Her work has been lauded by such varied fans as Michael Dirda of the Washington Post and Bryan Cogman of The Game of Thrones and her last was chosen as a Christmas gift pick by both the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.
