Do You Feel a Draft?

Please excuse the frivolous headline. I'm feeling giddy. I just finished the first draft of The 1895 Murder, third entry in my Sebastian McCabe - Jeff Cody mystery series. When I first started writing it, I thought it was just the Sebastian McCabe series. Who knows what else I will learn as I go along! I expect this book to be published in the autumn.

But first, I have to produce the final version of the second book. I also have two other mysteries and a couple of talks in development. With this many projects underway, I think it's time to create a website for my books. I'll be doing that within the next couple of months. As always, thanks for joining me!


  1. Dear Dr. Andriacco:
    Hi. My name is Kara Barney, a fellow Sherlockian from Salt Lake City, Utah. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your introduction to Baker Street Beat, "Holmes Sweet Holmes", immensely, and agree with you on many points. I own the Complete Sherlock series as well as the entire collection of the Basil Rathbone series, and I always was deeply troubled that they made Watson a bumbling oaf. He was, and will always be, anything but that to me.

    I also wept during "The Dying Detective" and "The Three Garridebs"...those are my top two favorites, but I also really enjoy "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax". I guess I just wanted to thank you for being a compatriot in my feelings toward Holmes and let you know that you are not alone out there! I wish you well on all of your future endeavors!

  2. Thanks for writing with the kind comments! I always enjoy hearing from readers. I hope that you would enjoy my mystery novels, too, which have a bit of a Sherlockian twist.
