Inspector Wexford's Creator Drops By To Announce His Return
The Vine books are a world away from the classic-puzzle Wexfords - and yet "Kissing the Gunner's Daughter" contains a neat reference to her alter ego, in the person of a policeman named Barry Vine. Novelist Julian Barnes borrowed a cottage on Rendell's property a few years ago to write a book that included a policeman he named Barry Vine in Rendell's honor. Since Barnes knew he would not be using the character again, he "gave" it to Rendell and she slid the policeman into her own series.

Long may she reign
Ruth Rendell isn't sure when she gave her first interview. Perhaps 40 years ago, she thinks; about the same time she first autographed a book for a member of royalty. She wasn't quite sure what to put in the novel for the then-Dutch queen, Juliana. But she has since learned that "when it is British royals, you simply write, 'with my humble duty' ".

One Week With John Gulliver - Great books? It’s no mystery, says Rendell
“My characters sometimes try to take over a plot and I have to crush them,” said the novelist, who lives in Maida Vale. “You have to remember what Graham Greene said about authors of fiction: ‘There’s always a little splinter of ice in them.’ He meant that you could be at the deathbed of a dear and close friend or relative and you would be taking down notes.”

It was too painful really and I just thought: why should I put myself through that?" she admits. Revisiting difficult experiences on the page is not something she believes in.
