Your work is really great. The producer wants me to get back with you in a few months when we've cut our teeth fully on straight fiction and get up to full-hour shows.

Thank you!

I forgot to say in my friend request that I'm also a south coast writer!

Hi Pauline--thanks for accepting my friend request! Congrats on your successes in crime fiction. I hope one day to write some crime fiction myself. I'll check out your true crime on your site--best wishes to you when you decide to write it. Historical true crimes can be very interesting, and yours is so close to home, so-to-speak.

Kind regards,

Gary

Hi Pauline, I'm not at the London Book Fair but am at Crimefest and Harrogate - I'm pretty sure you're at one of those and will certainly say Hi. Nice to catch up again.

Hi Pauline, I'm just catching up on some of my social networking thingies after 2 weeks or so away from a computer. Thanks for the friendship. Good to meet you here in crimespace, maybe one day we'll meet in real space at some crime get together or other!

Hello Pauline, you mentioned the RAF and my dad, now 90, has a story. He was career USAF and was transferred from Texas in 1954 to a closed RAF station called Molesworth in Hemingford-Abbots (Hunginton Shire, 60 miles north of London). Dad had the first busload of American troops to reopen the base. The entire mission was classified and he didn't know what was going on until years later. Each person had a top secret clearance and didn't know what other sections worked on. They took the belly out of B29s and put in a bar for paratrooper spies to hold onto to be dropped behind enemy lines. A new windowless building was built to produce pamphlets to be dropped.
I went to first grade there and remember learning to hand stitch a napkin. I'll check out your website.

Will do. I'm in the middle of writing right now. Marketing your book is so very important. Good luck with it. And don't forget to keep writing,because the more you write the better it gets, that's my experience anyway. I try to write every day even if it isn't much some days. But then I'm hooked on it and love creating plots and characters. It's tremendous fun. Speak again soon. Bye for now. Pauline.

Good Afternoon Pauline,
Thanks for being on "my friends". You are right though, I have multiple cases and experiences I can write about. I'm concentrating on getting my first book selling better, promoting and the likes. When you can, keep in touch...............

Hi Pauline, thank you for accepting!

I was nine years old in the sixth grade. It's funny how different the systems for labeling the school years are in different countries, isn't it? What used to be the common designations are changing here, so I'm having to relearn whether kids are in grammar school, junior high, middle school, or high school.

I'm looking forward to reading how your mystery evening event goes. Sounds like a pretty neat way to promote a book.

Please do. The mystery or thriller route might be ideal. I love the way that crime novels can highlight social issues without being patronizing or ramming them down people's throats. I just want to get people thinking - could this really be happening? My thriller novel In Cold Daylight was based on the tragic true story of firefighters dying of cancer. My husband is a former fire fighter and it was a conversation I overheard at the station of several firemen from one watch all contracting cancer that sparked the idea for a book. I researched and wrote this before 9/11 (though it wasn't published until 2006) and the research that has since been carried out by the University of Cinncinati ( hope I've spelt that correctly) has shown the rates of cancer for fire fighters is in many cancers 100% higher than for other occupations. I have been in touch with some US web sites highlighting this debate and have tried to get the debate going in the UK without success, but it will come. You can borrow my marine mysteries, and In Cold Daylight, from most libraries and of course they're available on Amazon and other on line stores. Good luck.

Marine mystery? Fascinating. A friend is a marine biologist who works for a non-profit organization, the Blue Ocean Institute, and I've been looking for ways to incorporate some of her knowledge/environmental-awareness-lessons into a vehicle like a horror movie. Never thought of the mystery novel route. I will certainly have to check your work out. It's a pleasure making your acquaintance!

Hi, Have been interviewed by our local newspaper, the Portsmouth News about my favourite books for their Spread The Word Campaign which aims to get more children and young people reading. Here I am talking about one of the great novels from the Golden Age of Crime, The Port of London Murders by Josephine Bell.
