Getting to grips with time frames in novels

Time frames in novels, and particularly when writing a series, as with the DI Andy Horton novels, the Art  Marvik mystery thrillers and my new 1950 set mystery series featuring Scotland Yard detective Inspector Ryga , are a tricky thing. There is ‘real time’ and there is ‘fictional time’.

Tide of Death the first DI Andy Horton by Pauline RowsonIn ‘real time’ I write a DI Andy Horton and either an Art Marvik or Inspector Ryga mystery in a year whereas in  ‘fictional time’ the novels are set over a shorter time frame.

Andy Horton was  thirty nine when I created him in Tide of Death in 2006 so by now he should  be fifty three. However, in ‘fictional  time’ fifteen novels later, he is only forty. The novels take place not over fourteen years but over eighteen months, which means for DI Andy Horton there are an  awful lot of murders in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, making it worse than   Midsomer Murder on a good day!

What makes action thriller hero Art Marvik tick

In this episode of my interview with John A. Hoda I'm talking about my undercover investigator, Art Marvik who currently appears in four action-packed, fast-paced, mystery thrillers - SILENT RUNNING #1 DANGEROUS CARGO #2 LOST VOYAGE #3 and DEAD SEA #4. 

"Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik. A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good series—action fans need Marvik on their radar." Booklist

Crime novels that go with a BANG!

Why not sample some crime novels that go with a real bang on Guy Fawkes day.  There are fifteen in the contemporary set Inspector Andy Horton police procedural crime series, four in the fast-paced, action-packed Art Marvik thriller series and three in the atmospheric gripping 1950s set Inspector Ryga mystery series, so plenty to choose from.

It's not only Guy Fawkes who can create fireworks.


Crime novels that go with a bang

Happy bonfire night - stay safe

What's on in November


November is the month for remembering and writing. For remembering those who have fallen or been injured in the service of their country on Remembrance Sunday on 14 November and on 11 November with a two minute silence at 11am. And before that remembering Guy Fawks' failed Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605 which has given us ever since Bonfire Night.

Death in the Harbour by Pauline RowsonNovember also sees me recalling the publication in 2020 of Inspector Ryga 1950 set mystery DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, followed this year on 4 October by publication of number three in the series DEATH IN THE NETS.

This November, 2021 I am deep into second revisions for Inspector Ryga mystery number four.
