Born in Scotland, Doyle was an author and physician. While he is most known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes he also wrote historical books and a series of science fiction novels as well. He traveled extensively, employed as a ship's surgeon before opening his own ophthalmology office which he purportedly had no patients.
Doyle attempted to kill off his world famous character Sherlock Holmes in 1893 in order to make more time for writing historical novels. Due to public outcry, and at his mother's urgings, Doyle began creating more adventures for Holmes and Watson in 1901 with the publication of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Doyle eventually wrote four novels and 56 short stories of the life of the world famous detective.
