Shane Peacock

(Avtor)

Shane Peacock je bil rojen v Thunder Bayu leta 1957, odraščal pa je v Kapuskasingu. Danes živi z družino v bližini Cobourga v kanadski provinci Ontario. Obiskoval je Univerzo Trent in Univerzo Toronto, na kateri ga je zadnje leto poučeval znani profesor Robertson Davies. Peacock je mnogostranski pisatelj, dramatik in novinar. Rad se udeležuje raznih literarnih festivalov in obiskuje šole po vsej državi.
Bibliografija za mladino je pritegnila veliko pozornosti, še posebej deli The Great Farini in The Dylan Maples Adventures. Njegovi članki in druga dela so bili doslej objavljeni v Sports Illustrated, Saturday Night, Reader's Digest in Maclean's; prinesli so mu nagrade in priznanje na državni ravni. Piše tudi scenarije za televizijske oddaje. Serija o dečku Sherlocku Holmesu je nastala kot rezultat Shanove prevzetosti nad večplastnim mojstrskim detektivom, ki ga je ustvaril sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in po mnogih urah raziskovanja vseh mogočih 'šerlokovskih' podatkov in zanimivosti.
