Pauline Rowson entertains a packed audience at Midhurst with the secrets of crime writing

Pauline Rowson talking to members of Midhurst U3A about her marine based crime novelsAn enthusiastic audience greeted crime author Pauline Rowson in the West Sussex historic market town of Midhurst on a wet and windy afternoon in November to listen spellbound on how she writes her popular crime novels which are set against the backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England. The historic town has provided inspiration for many writers including Hillaire Belloc, John Wyndham and Pauline's fellow crime author the late Ruth Rendell.

The DI Andy Horton  crime novels have recently been option by top UK production company Lime Pictures, producers of Channel 4's Hollyoaks, who are seeking to bring the enigmatic sailing detective to the TV screens.
