FAQ- What authors and books have inspired you? And do you read your contempories novels?


I loved adventure and mystery novels when I was a child and a teenager and this love of crime fiction, thrillers and mystery novels has continued throughout my adulthood. In my teens I enjoyed the novels of Leslie Charteris featuring Simon Templar, The Saint, and those written by John Creasey featuring The Baron and Gideon to name only two of his characters. Creasey was a very prolific writer and also the author of Westerns which I went through a phase of reading, including those penned by Zane Grey, an author who locked together character and land so that they were indivisible something that perhaps also took root with me, locking my characters, DI Andy Horton; Art Marvik and Inspector Ryga in with the sea and the sea with my characters.

The story behind THE CHALE BAY MURDERS an Inspector Andy Horton Mystery


The Chale Bay Murders by Pauline RowsonLocations are always a great inspiration for me and trigger ideas for many of my crime novels particularly those in the series featuring my Harley-Davidson, sailing detective Inspector Andy Horton, whose patch is Portsmouth on the South Coast of England.

For number seven in the Horton crime series, THE CHALE BAY MURDERS, I was inspired by the beautiful and rugged coastline on the east of the Isle of Wight, in particular the stretch from Ventnor to St Catherine’s lighthouse and the secluded bays, a good place to put a body!

Meet Inspector Ryga in these gripping 1950s set mysteries


Death in the Harbour mystery by Pauline Rowson⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐" Inspector Ryga is an engaging lead character, shaped by his war-time experiences to be a sensitive, astute detective. The interesting setting of post-war Britain is soaked in atmosphere and I loved the complex, twisting plot. Historical crime-writing at its very best." Amazon

It's the 1950s and Britain is struggling to come to terms with peace, in the grip of austerity  and rationing. Scotland Yard has a Murder Squad and its officers are often sent out with only a moment's notice to assist in investigations around the country. One of them is Detective Inspector Alun Ryga, his  specialism is assisting in coastal based crime.
