Choosing names for your characters in fiction writing

Getting the right name for characters in a novel can be a tricky business. Sometimes they come to me completely out of the blue as I am creating a character, other times I will struggle to find the name that best suits the character.

I have always had this thing that people should look like their names. When someone is introduced to me I will think yes, you are a Jacqueline or a Malcolm. Other times I will think, oh no, you're definitely a Karen or a Wayne. And so it is with the characters I am creating. The name has to fit. If it's not right then the character isn't right. The name also needs to fit with the age and nationality although you can have exceptions.

So where do I get names from? Read more...

Did you know? Uncovering fascinating facts on Lost Voyage


Lost Voyage an Art Marvik Marine MysteryWhile researching for the third Art Marvik mystery, Lost Voyage, I discovered quite a lot about the ship recycling business.

In Lost Voyage, the Mary Jo, a salvage tug, went missing in 2003 on its way to Newfoundland where it was to tow an obsolete Russian cruise ship back to Britain for recycling. Some decades later, in the present day, someone claims to have found the Mary Jo locked in the Arctic ice, it is a claim that sparks a series of murders and Marvik’s mission for the UK’s National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) is to discover the secret of the Mary Jo and find a ruthless assassin who has embarked on a slaying spree to prevent it from ever being revealed.

Location map - Inspector Andy Horton's Patch

I have often been asked for a map showing the location of the various Inspector Andy Horton police procedural crime novels. Well at last here it is courtesy of Google Maps! Click on the markers to see where each of the Inspector Andy Horton novels are set and a book description and jacket cover will pop up.

It's been fun creating it. I hope you have fun viewing it. Do let me know if you have any comments or suggestions to make to add or improve it.

The story behind Art Marvik Mystery, Lost Voyage, by Pauline Rowson


Lost Voyage an Art Marvik Mystery by Pauline RowsonHow do you find a ghost ship once the trail has gone cold? And how do you locate it if it has been lost in the frozen seas of the Arctic? These were two questions that sparked the idea for the third in the Art Marvik mystery series, Lost Voyage. It also fitted neatly with the fact that Marvik’s late father, Dan Coulter, was a renowned oceanographer with a special interest in the Arctic and it had been the Arctic where he had met Marvik’s mother, Eerika, a marine archaeologist while working on a joint expedition with Norway in 1989.

I decided to conduct further research, desk bound I hasten to add rather than physically embarking on an expedition to the Arctic. I’ll leave the tough stuff to my fictional characters.
