Fab audience at Dell Quay Sailing Club

Lovely audience at Dell Quay Sailing Club on Saturday 21 March where I was invited to give a talk about my crime writing and crime novels.  It was great to meet some die hard DI Andy Horton fans and to introduce my new hero, former marine commando, Art Marvik in Silent Running.

The story behind the story - Death Surge - DI Andy Horton 10, now in paperback

The inspiration for Death Surge came like all the other novels in the series featuring the flawed and rugged detective DI Andy Horton from the location. It is locations that inspire me and with the Horton series, set against the powerfully evocative British marine landscape of the Solent on the South Coast of England, there is always a good place to put a body.

Placing the crime novels against the backdrop of the sea has many advantages. The sea is never constant. In one day it can change from being calm to turbulent. It is also dangerous, misleading and evil like many villains, and although it can look safe beneath can be a sandbank, a rock, a wreck, a dangerous current all of which can cause havoc and kill, and be used to good effect in a crime novel. It also provides a great backdrop for pace and great settings for a climax, which, of course, I’ve used in Death Surge.

Pauline Rowson entertains London audience at Hammersmith and Fulham

A trip to London is always interesting and enjoyable, in its own way, i.e. to soak up the city atmosphere and great for picking up ideas for characters. My recent visit to London was to meet members of the Hammersmith and Fulham U3A where I had been invited to give a talk about my crime novels.

Hammersmith and Fulham U3A Pauline Rowson explaining how she writes her DI Andy Horton crime novels - March 2015Almost a hundred people packed the church hall in Hammersmith on a bright sunny March morning to listen to me talking about how I research, plot and write my crime novels, those of my new hero, former marine commando, Art Marvik, in Silent Running, my stand alone thrillers, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill and of my DI Andy Horton series set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England, which has recently been optioned for TV by one of the UK's top television production companies, Lime Pictures, who are seeking to bring the flawed and rugged, sailing  detective, Andy Horton to the TV screens.
