Pauline Rowson on choosing book titles

I'm often asked how I come up with titles for my crime novels and the answer is usually with great difficulty. However some titles can come instantly, almost the moment the novel hits the page although that is rare.

The elements that influence the choosing of a title include the location and setting for the murder, as in Dead Man's Wharf, and the main character's action i.e. in the crime novel In For The Kill, Alex Albury is out to kill the man who wrecked his life.
