Why Portsmouth is the perfect setting for marine set mysteries

Pauline Rowsoncrime novels on literary mapMy DI Andy Horton crime novels are featured on the Portsmouth Literary Map, designed and compiled by Dr Mark Frost, of the English Department at the University of Portsmouth.

The map pinpoints the locations of all the DI Andy Horton crime novels along with extracts from each of the DI Andy Horton books (15). It also gives you the locations of where I was raised, went to school and worked! The website now has an article by me on why Portsmouth is the ideal setting from my Inspector Andy Horton crime novels.

I'm honoured I am featured along with Andy Horton, of course, because I am in such great company of both past and present writers all with connections to the vibrant coastal City of Portsmouth, UK. The illustrious company of past literary connections include Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H G Wells, Charles Dickens, Nevile Shute, James Riordan and Rudyard Kipling. Living literary figures include me, my fellow crime author, Graham Hurley, Neil Gaiman, and Michelle Magorian.

Although it was a childhood ambition of mine to become a published author I never dreamed that one day many people across the world would read and enjoy my crime mystery novels and that I would feature alongside such illustrious writers. My thanks to all my readers and supporters and to Portsmouth University for including me in this wonderful roll of honour.
