Reviewer Hardit Singh was most helpful.    I have to admit, with my scenes of the Boston Brahmins and Oscar Wilde I was over the top.  Wilde was not the weakling I made him out to be.  I portrayed Wilde that way just to show how evil the Professor could be.

Thanks to my friend Kerrie Droban for the review.  Kerrie is a major author of fiction and true crime.

Mr. Singh is right.  Professor Moriarty may have thought himself a Robin Hood for the Irish, but he was a baddie.  None of this is in the Sherlock Holmes stories, I was trying to give the Professor a purpose.

My psychologist friend, Dr. Rita Pettiford said it best.  I portrayed Moriarty as a narcissist.  In my book, he justifies what he does for Irish causes in general, his mother and his father’s memory in particular.  In other words, not completely self-centered, but no Mr. Nice Guy.

I might do some more papers and exchange between Professor Moriarty and Dr. Freud.

Sigmund Freud

 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
