Short biography
Let us pause to give thanks to the ophthalmology patients who never showed up in the waiting room of the young Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 1880s, leaving him plenty of free time to launch his career as a writer. In March 1886, he started writing A Study in Scarlet, the novel that would catapult him to fame. Two years later, it was published in Beeton's Christmas Annual and introduced us to the immortal Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.
