As a teenager, Sherwood wrote a column, "Miscellaneous," for Top Hat, published by Magical Youths International, and in the 1970s wrote two books published by Micky Hades, "The Conjurer's Calculator" and "The Circuited Sorcerer."

Noted for his hundreds of mentalism performances in the character of Sherlock Holmes, Sherwood has been best known in magic as a writer of mini-biographies of fellow performers, for The News Tops and for "Vibrations," the publication of the Psychic Entertainers Association.
