SOUTHBOURNE-ON-SEA

Southbourne-on-Sea lies between Hengistbury Head and Boscombe and was founded by a Doctor Compton in the 1870s; he wanted to create a year round health resort completely separate from Bournemouth. It would be lovely if we still had the winter gardens and the pier, but it is still a resort enjoyed all year round, with people to be found striding or jogging along the cliff top or sea front, even in the strongest south westerly winds.

There are three zig zags and a cliff lift to take you down to the beach that forms part of Poole Bay; you can walk along the promenade to Bournemouth Pier and beyond until you reach Sandbanks.

My new novel opens in Southbourne on  Valentine's Night 2014.

In the summer of 2013 Annette Bethany Brown went missing without trace. Her boyfriend Toby Channing was the last person to see her, the only person who knew where she had spent the previous days.

In February 2014 Tobias Elliot Channing, private investigator, was still roaming the country, a camper van detective specialising in missing persons; hoping to discover why so many people go missing. He was visiting every place that had a connection with Anna, there were still no clues to her disappearance.

WARNINGS TO STAY AWAY FROM  COASTAL AREAS  WERE THE SIGNAL TO HEAD STRAIGHT FOR SOUTHBOURNE CLIFF TOP - STRONG WINDS AND  HIGH TIDE ON THE MORNING OF 15TH FEBRUARY - THEN DOWN TO GET A CLOSER VIEW....  BEACH HUTS REDUCED TO MATCHSTICKS.

BOSCOMBE

Boscombe lies between Southbourne and Bournemouth and has its own pier. The whole sea front area and pier have been regenerated and despite the expensive fiasco of the surf reef, the other improvements have made it a popular destination.

 'Moving On' and 'Red Car', stories in the 'Hallows and Heretics' anthology, are set in this area.
