Who are the 'men in the garden'? Was Chipping Norton really once the centre of the universe? What part do dodgy knees have to play? Just who are Johnny Norfolk and Johnny Stevens? What is W.A.S.T.E.? What connects the Cotswolds, Venice, East Molesey and Lyme Regis? Why would anyone pay to see 'Ophelia get Your Gun'? And just what is the appropriate response to virtually everything? Some of these questions may be answered...some may not in this comic tale of family life in this, David Ruffle's first foray into contemporary fiction.

About the Author
David Ruffle was born in Northamptonshire in the UK at an early age in 1956,yes..a long time ago. The school years passed by in a blur, or was he the blur ? He managed to extricate himself from the education system at 15 years of age and embarked on the adventure of life. Eventually, said adventure took him to Dorset and the beautiful town of Lyme Regis in July of 2004. He felt immediately at home here and surprised himself by starting to write...first, poetry and later ghost stories. All the time he felt that Lyme Regis would be a perfect place for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson to have an adventure, any kind of adventure ! And so...Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror was born. The story continues. David is now with the MX publishing team and further titles have appeared: Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Legacy, Tales From The Stranger's Room (as contributor and editor), Holmes and Watson: End Peace, a children's illustrated book, Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Snowman with illustrations by Rikey Austin, another Lyme Regis resident and hugely talented to boot. Also in the offing is an outing to Scarborough for Holmes and Watson, a proposed tale of thievery, murder and cricket! Meanwhile, he is still to be found in Lyme Regis, working away and drinking the odd cider, diet permitting.
