Andrew Lane


Andrew Lane is a British author and journalist. He has written a number of spin-off novels in the Virgin New Adventures range and audio dramas for Big Finish based on the BBC science fiction television series Doctor Who (and a novel for the Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood), as well as assorted non-fiction books based upon popular film and television franchises

During 2009, Estate, Macmillan Books announced that Lane, under license by the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Literary, would be writing a series of books focusing on the early life of Sherlock Holmes under the general title: Young Sherlock Holmes. Andrew Lane presents the detective as a young man, scrupulously true to the character developed by Conan Doyle. Throughout the series, the reader finds out how Holmes developed his skills and his very particular traits.

Andrew Lane’s latest book Knife Edge was very well received. Linda Wilson of Crime Review had this to say:

“This is a stylish and entertaining version of Sherlock that can be happily placed beside the originals in the library of any fan.”
