The facts behind fingerprinting


Pauline Rowson and Jane Ashton Hampshire Fingerprint BureauAnHampshire Police Fingerprint Bureau have assisted me many times with my research for my Inspector Andy Horton crime novels for which I am very grateful. I've visited Hampshire Police Support Headquarters at Netley to study how the fingerprints taken at the scene of crime and of people in police custody are identified. And, of course, have used this information in my crime novels.

I'm always looking for a good place to put a body!


Pauline Rowson on location research Haslar MarinaWhen I’m not pounding the keyboard or plotting my crime novels I’m walking the coastal paths and by ways of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, looking for a good place to put a body! A fictional one that is. I can't pass a boatyard, beach or bay without thinking there must be a dead body or a skeleton here somewhere. One day I’m sure I’m going to be arrested or locked up as a psychopath and if that happens then I hope either of my heroes, the enigmatic and flawed Portsmouth based detective, DI Andy Horton, or the rugged ex-marine, Art Marvik, will come to my rescue because, in fact, it would be their fault if I found myself in such an awkward position.

Secret doors, hidden rooms and ten ghosts – is this the setting for a new crime novel?


Historic Groundlings Theatre PortsmouthIs this the next setting for a DI Andy Horton crime novel? Or perhaps a totally new one. Contemporary or historical crime? There was plenty of material for me when I went on location research at the small, unique Georgian Theatre in Portsmouth, Groundlings Theatre. I was treated to a tour of it by Richard Stride, artistic director and owner.

Groundlings Theatre is a Grade II * historic listed building built in 1784 in the waterfront city of Portsmouth. It is a truly atmospheric place with secret doors, hidden rooms and ten ghosts! And along with the ghosts it still has a lot of the original features such as original floorboards and fire places. It was founded by philanthropic patrons, John Shakespeare (very apt) and 5 merchants, with the aim of educating the poor (boys) downstairs, in the Beneficial School, while upstairs was used by high society for meetings, concerts and theatre.
