Craig Stephen Copland is a native of Toronto, Canada and now divides his time between Canada, where his children and grandchildren live, and Manhattan/Washington DC, where he still pretends to be writing and consulting. Way back in the late 1960s and early 1970s he was an English major at the University of Toronto and had the good fortune to study under both Northrup Frye and Marshall McLuhan. At sometime in the decades since he became a Sherlockian and developed a minor addiction to the sacred canon of Arthur Conan Doyle stories about the great detective.
He is a recent member of the Sherlock Holmes Society of Canada, who have met faithfully for many years under the name of The Bootmakers (www.TorontoBootmakers.com) and recommends this excellent group of fine chaps and fascinating ladies to all those who share a devotion to Mr. Holmes.
In real life, when he has time for it, he writes about and serves as a consultant for political campaigns in Canada and the USA (www.ConservativeGrowth.net) but would likely abandon that vocation if he thought for a moment he could make a living writing about Sherlock Holmes.
