Introduction

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is one of the most famous writers of all time. Artists are measured by what they create and are known for their works. Artists must work hard to create something that they would like to be remembered by. No artist wants to be remembered for their worst work. Writers are known for their characters rather than their stories. A story without a character is not a story and a story without a good character will not be a good story. Conan Doyle achieved fame by creating one of the most intriguing characters in fiction - Sherlock Holmes.
