PJ Quinn is a collaboration between published novelist and poet, Pauline Kirk, and her lawyer daughter Jo Summers.

When Pauline started suffering from 'writer's block', Jo challenged her to write a crime novel.  A good old fashioned 'who dunnit', with interesting characters and a great plot.  Then somehow Jo found herself co-writing with Pauline and the rest, as they say, is history.
 
Enter DI Ambrose, a gentle giant of a police detective, and his colleagues DS Winters, WPC Meadows and others at the Chalk Heath police station.  The first novel 'Foul Play' was published in 2011.  'Poison Pen' came out in 2012 and was followed by 'Close Disharmony' in 2014. The fourth novel, 'Poetic Justice' was published in 2018.
 
A new, expanded edition of 'Foul Play' appeared in 2020, including additional chapters about WPC Meadows and PC Sutton. Second printings of 'Poison Pen' and 'Close Disharmony' were also published in 2020. Jo and Pauline are now working on the fifth novel in the series - though progress was initially hampered by the difficulty of meeting during the Pandemic. The occasional Zoom meeting has helped.
