Elizabeth Greenwood studied sculpture at St. Martins School of Art in London and in Florence and Rome. She had a classical education, preferring Greek to Latin for the richness of its vocabulary, and her sculpture, with its reference to Greek mythology, reflects this preference. She started her writing career as a scriptwriter in the World Service of the BBC, where she learnt the value of dedicated researching. Apart from poetry, she enjoys producing emblematic fiction based on Mary Poppinss song A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down, thus fulfilling the writers task as an entertainer cum moralist. Both the poetry and the modeling activity date from early childhood. She was fortunate in having been born into a family where close relatives united a passion for literature with a keen interest in science (of space especially), politics and, the cinema. In later years, she has applied herself to creating works in the field of philosophy and religion. Her particular interest in Sherlock Holmes comes from the fact that as a famous character, Sherlock Holmes was born in America in a play on Broadway, where it was an immediate success with a famous leading actor of the time in the main part, while Conan Doyle, his creator, was fighting as a voluntary frontline surgeon in the Boer War.
