Pauline Rowson discusses the heroes who have inspired her

On the wall above my desk are photographs of four men. They look down on me as I write my crime novels featuring the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and the trouble former Royal Marine Commando, turned undercover marine investigator, art Marvik.

Heroes have always fascinated me. It probably stems from reading so many thrillers and spy novels as a child.  Then I married a hero, well he is to me, a former fire-fighter from Red Watch, Portsmouth, UK, who took many risks and saved many lives.  It’s no wonder then that I turned to writing about a hero.

So who are the men on the wall, my heroes, who watch me while I write?  They are, in no particular order of preference:

Humphrey Bogart – think Frank McCloud in Key Largo, Philip Marlowe in The Big Sleep, Rick Leland in Across the Pacific;

Cary Grant – think Roger O. Thornhill in North By Northwest;, Johnnie in Suspicion;

Harrison Ford – think Indiana Jones, Dr Richard Walker in Frantic, Dr Richard Kimble in The Fugitive, John Book in Witness.

And then there’s Roger Moore, my favourite James Bond and before that the enigmatic Saint (I loved those novels).

None of these men look like DI Andy Horton (not to me anyway) but they have all played heroes and as I pen another crime novel they and the characters they have brought to life on screen from the pen of other writers inspire me and spur me ever onwards.

Pauline Rowson discusses her new crime busting hero, Art Marvik



I like heroes and I’m a sucker for adventure stories, thrillers and mysteries which is why I created my enigmatic detective DI Andy Horton who currently appears in twelve novels. But I also had a hankering to create a new character for a new series, someone who was not bound by the official rules of the law, but who was nevertheless on the right side of it. The series also had to have all the hallmarks of my brand – a troubled hero, the sea, boats, interesting and diverse characters and lots of action. So already the stage was set for Art Marvik.

 Marvik first appeared in SILENT RUNNING  fresh out of the Royal Marines where he had served in the elite Special Boat Services. He’s tough, highly trained, fearless, intelligent and fit.  But injuries inflicted while in combat have forced him to leave the Marines and seek a new life in Civvy Street.  He’s not sure what lies ahead for him. Then his former Marine comrade, Shaun Strathen, enlists his help to find a missing computer scientist and a former girlfriend of Marvik’s goes missing after visiting him in his remote Isle of Wight cottage and Marvik finds his himself enlisted to work as an undercover marine investigator for the newly formed National Intelligence Marine Squad, headed by Detective Chief Superintendent Philip Crowder.


Marvik’s role in the squad is to go into a mission practically cold with minimum information, to ask questions, to stir up trouble, to put himself on the line and to provoke a killer into the open.  He’s done it often in the Marines.  He sees no problem in doing it for the National Intelligence Marine Squad.  Both SILENT RUNNING and the second in the series, DANGEROUS CARGO, focuses on crimes that have a marine connection (obviously) and also links to the past.

In DANGEROUS CARGO Marvik is detailed to attend the funeral of a man found dead on the shores of the Isle of Wight only it’s a man who was officially identified as dead fifty five years ago.

Scarred physically from his combat injuries Marvik is also emotionally scarred by the death of his parents – his mother, a renowned marine archaeologist, his father an acknowledged expert in oceanography – were killed in an underwater earthquake in 1997.  But DANGEROUS CARGO introduces a new twist to their deaths and another marine mystery that Marvik is eventually duty bound to investigate.
