Pauline Rowson discusses how her DI Horton mysteries are transformed from a simple idea into a fully formed book

I'm often asked if I have a writing routine. There are writers who write the same time every day come what may; others who will write a certain number of words every day and when they've done their quota, they'll knock off.  Me?

My husband and I buy closeouts from major U.S. manufacturers and resell them to discount stores. When the dollar stores gained popularity years back, U.S. manufacturers couldn’t compete with the off-brand imitations being sold for a…
