Inspiration for a Novel

Rena George Cornish Crime Series, Crime Fiction 4 Comments

It happened years ago when we were sailing up the beautiful River Fal in Cornwall. A bend in the river, and suddenly there it was – an exquisite white house sitting high on the bank. Immediately my writer’s mind was whirring. I could imagine the vast airy rooms inside it, the high vaulted ceilings…the people who lived there. The woman would be an artist and her work would hang everywhere in the house. The man would be a rich Cornish …

Plotting the Novel from the End!

Rena George Books, Cornish Crime Series, Crime Fiction 0 Comments

I’m almost 30,000 words into Book Six in my Loveday Ross Cornish mysteries series. It’s been progressing slowly and steadily, which is great considering the different approach I’m trying with this novel. My cast of characters came first, as always, and I’ve fleshed the new ones out with a CV and backstory. I even write a little potted history and description of places my characters visit. This is also the first time I’ve plotted my ending first. I took advice …

Flying the Flag for Cornwall

Rena George Cornwall, Crime Fiction 2 Comments

You know me, any excuse to wax lyrical about Cornwall. The fact that the county has just been voted the UK’s favourite holiday destination for the SEVENTH time by the British Travel Awards is a definite reason to once again celebrate this gorgeous corner of England. If you’ve never been there, or (like me) are a regular visitor and suffering withdrawal symptoms because you’re not actually there at the moment, then here are a few images to wet your appetite. …

Fancy hanging around with a sexy, rugged detective?

Rena George Crime Fiction, Reviews 4 Comments

This post is a complete indulgence for me. I mean, how hard could it be for an author to write about a fictional character she loves – even if it isn’t one she created herself? This is how I feel about Pauline Rowson’s brilliant DI Andy Horton. Life has damaged him, and he’s been dealt more than a few rough and unfair blows, not least from the snooty ex-wife, Catherine. Andy is a tough cop with a deeply ingrained sense …

Back Where It All Began

Rena George Cornwall, Crime Fiction, Poldark 4 Comments

You might just have noticed that I am totally in love with Poldark. It was the original TV series with the wonderful Robin Ellis and Angharad Rees that inspired my passion for Cornwall. So when I began writing fiction about five  years ago, there was no question of where my novels would be set. It had to be beautiful Cornwall. The mine scenes in the new Poldark series are set around the Botallack area. If you go there on your …
