What does it take to be a successful writer? Pauline Rowson explains


Pauline Rowson's crime novels
It’s often said that you should write what you know, but I don't agree. I’ve never committed a murder, or been a police officer, and neither am I married to one. Before I started writing my crime novels I had limited experience and knowledge of the law. I’d never been to autopsy, (and still haven't) yet after many trials and tribulations I finally got the job as a crime writer. I now have twenty four published crime novels under my belt and more to come. So what does it take to become a successful writer? Here's my take on some of the basic requirements.

Policing and detection in Inspector Ryga's 1950 set mysteries



Death in the Nets by Pauline RowsonDEATH IN THE NETS is the third in the Inspector Ryga 1950s set mystery series, published on 4 October 2021 in paperback, as an e book and on Amazon Kindle. It is set in the fishing port of Brixham, Devon where Scotland Yard's Inspector Ryga investigates the death of a man discovered tangled in fishing nets in the harbour.

DEATH IN THE COVE is the first in the Inspector Ryga 1950s set mystery series, set on the Royal island of Portland, Dorset with DEATH IN THE HARBOUR number two, set in the port of Newhaven, East Sussex..

The 1950s is a fascinating period where memories of the war are very strong, and the fear of more world conflicts haunt people. Society and policing in the 1950s was vastly different to today, no mobile phones, no dashing about in high speed cars and no computers so it was extremely interesting to research and write.

Are crime writers psychotic?

Pauline Rowson's crime novels
The relationship between writers and their characters takes many forms. Some of my characters irritate me, others entertain, some make me feel cuddly and comfortable, while others I positively loath. And some I love warts and all even my alpha male Detective Superintendent Steve Uckfield, head of the Major Crime Team, with all his disgusting habits. But whatever the relationship between the creator and characters it should never be dull.

It's October and DI Andy Horton is investigating in the SHROUD OF EVILroud of Evil


Shroud of Evil a DI Andy Horton Mystery by Pauline Rowson

DI Andy Horton is assigned the case of a missing person: Jasper Kenton, a private investigator. Horton suspects the disappearance has a mundane explanation, that Kenton has gone off with a woman or absconded with his clients' fees but when Kenton’s car turns up, and a shocking discovery is made, things turn serious.

"A compelling protagonist and mounting suspense make the book hard to put down." Publishers Weekly


SHROUD OF EVIL is about secrets, lies, exploitation and murder. Secrets can be kept for years, as they have been by those involved in the murder investigation in SHROUD OF EVIL but it is one person’s determination to expose a secret and exploit it for his own gain that rips apart the fabric of many lives. Once a secret is exposed nothing is ever the same again.
