A good day's writing

Yesterday, as the rain and wind bashed against the window of my office I escaped into the world of DI Horton in the new crime novel I’m writing, as yet untitled. It will be the sixth in the marine mystery crime series featuring Inspector Horton and my eighth crime novel. Blood on the Sand, the fifth Horton novel, is due to be published on 28 February 2010, and Dead Man’s Wharf (number four) will be out in paperback also in February 2010.

I managed to unravel the plot lines of this new Horton novel, which once again is set in Portsmouth on the south coast of England, and get on with some fluent creative writing. Now I'm eager to return to it, which is what I shall do after catching up on my Twitter and Facebook updates and writing my blog entries. The wind continues to roar across the garden from the reaches of Langstone Harbour close to where I live, and every now and again the rain comes down like stair rods. Not a day to be out and about and certainly not a day to be at sea. I'll leave all that to Andy Horton as he solves yet another complex crime set against the backdrop of Portsmouth Harbour.
