Goodreads asked Peter Bartram:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Peter Bartram Headline Murder follows the adventures of a crime reporter on a daily newspaper in 1960s Brighton, UK. My first job in newspapers was in 1966 on a paper in nearby Worthing. I guess that background gave me the idea. And when I wanted to create a series of crime novels, it seemed obvious to make the protagonist, Colin Crampton, a crime reporter.
