Author Bio
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University, before setting up a rather unsuccessful practice in Plymouth. Whilst waiting for patients, Doyle began writing stories. Although most famous for his Sherlock Holmes detective stories, Doyle also stands alongside Jules Verne and H.G. Wells as one of the founders of the science fiction genre, with his supernatural adventure stories featuring Professor Challenger. Doyle was knighted in 1902 and died in 1930.
