My Favorite Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

There are so many authors whom I like. But my favorite author is Sir Arther Conan Doyle. It was he who wrote the world famous Sherlock Holmes detective stories.

Sir Arther Conan Doyle was born on 22nd May 1859. He was born in England. He received his education at Stony – Hurst College. He joined Edinburgh University and passed out as a doctor. While at the University he was an eminent detective. Through Dr. Bell, he achieved the knowledge in the art of detection.

Very soon Doyle becomes an inventor of detective stories. His greatest invention was Sherlock Holmes, the master detective of all times. Doyle published his first novel in 1918. It was named “Study of Scarlet” His second novel “Mica Clark” made him a master novelist. But Doyle never gave up his profession as a doctor.

He served as a doctor in the Boir War. Therefore the British government presented him a knighthood. Thereafter he was known as Sir Arther Conan Doyle. This great man died on July 07th 1930.
