Geri at Jane's Vow Renewal ReceptionGeri Schear is an award-winning author and short story writer. Her first novel, A Biased Judgement: The Sherlock Holmes Diaries 1897 topped Amazon’s Bestselling Sherlock Holmes novels’ list for months after its 2014 release.

The mystery novel combines actual historical events of the Victorian era with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s canon, and introduces an intriguing new character, Lady Beatrice. Sherlock Holmes author Derrick Belanger said, “If there was an award for best new Holmes character, I’d give it to Lady Beatrice.”

A Biased Judgement was granted a seal by the Conan Doyle estate. Two subsequent Holmes novels, Sherlock Holmes and the Other Woman, and Return to Reichenbach have also been published by MX to strong reviews and sales.

A winner of the Irish Writers’ Centre Novel Fair in 2012, Geri’s short stories have appeared in a variety of literary journals in Ireland and the US as well as in a number of MX anthologies.

She has worked in a variety of fields in several countries, including the theatre, healthcare, administration, and education. She has taught writing, art, computing, and healthcare. Born in Dublin, Ireland, she has lived in London, Jerusalem, and the US. At present, she resides in County Meath, not far from the ancient home of the Irish kings, the Hill of Tara.

Geri’s non-fiction has appeared in Writers Digest, Writers Forum, Literary Traveler, and many others. She is currently working on her fourth novel, a psychological thriller called “Lisa Lies”.  For more information, see her author’s page on Amazon
