I know you're a huge fan of Star Trek and have had no problems writing for it, but would you write for Sherlock even though you're a fan of that as well? I mean, as a writer, do you worry about the separation of fanon and canon or how to maintain impartiality when exposed to fan ideas, thoughts, and show direction?

Well, there are a few different angles from which to approach this.
i came early to the business of working for licensed properties, both on TV / film and in novel form — it was only a few months after selling The Door into Fire that I did my first animation work — and so I now have some thirty years’ experience in how to love a property as a fan without letting that fondness interfere with the business of writing effectively for it as a professional. It does require a certain turn of mind, and an ability to balance one’s fannish attitudes and opinions equably with the requirements of film or serial drama and one’s producers. (Directors come and go, but producers are forever.)
For Trek, as you say, this hasn’t been a problem. As a first-generation Star Trek fan I had fifteen-plus years for my initial passion for Trek to settle to the point where (when I started writing first books, then TV for money) it was ready to run in harness with what the licensors needed. There seems to be a certain amount of consensus that I haven’t done too badly at this. And the hang for this kind of thing has carried over into other TV work since: so keeping the fannish and pro-ish sides apart is no problem for me. This is what TV writers do (or else they don’t keep doing that kind of work for long. Word very quickly gets around about TV writers who don’t act like professionals where work is concerned).
Sherlock would be another story entirely for a bunch of reasons…
Obviously Anna's favorite color is green. I mean DUHR. But did you notice that she also wears quite a bit of purple, too? As she's growing up, there's always purple on her dress or shoes... I'm willing to bet that it's her second favorite color.

oooorrrr maybe it’s Elsa’s favorite color and she wears it to remind her of Elsa… (I think I saw Elsa wearing a lot of purple…but it may have just been dark blue ish and then I’d have ruined this whole headcanon thing) ~mad-hatters-daughter
