BBC Radio Solent Interview with Steve Harris on the Breakfast Show

Up early, a car trip along the M27 to Southampton in the mist and dark of the early morning and a radio interview at 6.40am with Steve Harris, standing in for Julian Clegg on the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Solent on Thursday 2 October.

We chatted about Undercurrent, DI Andy Horton (9) just published in paperback (October 14), about the latest in the Horton series, Shroud of Evil being available in hardcover and as an ebook and the forthcoming CSI Portsmouth on 8 November 2014.

Pauline Rowson on BBC Radio Solent October 2014Steve also asked me about the background to my enigmatic detective, DI Andy Horton and I explained how Horton is a flawed and rugged cop whose patch is Portsmouth CID. He's prepared to take risks and is fearless in his search for justice. He's been raised in children's homes and with foster parents after his mother abandoned him as a child. He has a desperate need to belong and yet is always on the outside. Being alone is his greatest fear, yet he is alone.

Pauline Rowson talking to Steve Harris BBC Radio Solent Steve also asked me how I plot my crime novels and I explained briefly how I draw up plot lines and map out the main storyline, the sub plots and Andy Horton's quest to find the truth behind his mother's disappearance, using it as a storyboard. And all this is a five minute radio interview!

BBC Radio Sam Fraser and crime author Pauline Rowson,It was great fun and lovely to see the production team again, including the amazing Sam Fraser, who presents the 5a.m show. I don't know how she does it! But if you're up at that time in the morning and live, work or are travelling in the Radio Solent area then it is well worth tuning into her programme.

You can listen to all the BBC Radio Solent programmes on the BBC website.
