Portchester Library audience get an insight into crime writing

Pauline Rowson at Portchester Library talking about her crime novelsVisitors to Portchester Library in Hampshire were treated to an insight into crime writing on Monday 7 December  when they heard author Pauline Rowson talk about the inspiration behind her popular Solent crime novels featuring the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and her South Coast marine based crime novels featuring former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik.

The author of fifteen crime novels Pauline Rowson explained how she plots, researches and writes her books. The DI Andy Horton crime novels are set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area of Portsmouth, Fareham, Gosport and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England where Pauline Rowson lives. They have been hailed as "compelling," "multi-layered and complex" "a great read for mystery lovers".

Pauline Rowson at Portchester Library with Fatal Catch, Di Andy HortonThere are twelve novels in the DI Andy Horton series, with Fatal Catch the latest published in the UK in hardcover by Severn House Publishers  in September 2015 and released as ebook on 20 December 2015. It  will be published in the USA on the 1 January 2016.

Rowson's flawed and rugged detective  has been described by US reviewer Booklist as " an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms."

The DI Andy Horton series has been optioned by top UK television production company Lime Pictures, makers of Channel 4's Hollyoaks,who are seeking to bring the enigmatic sailing detective to the television screens.

Pauline Rowson Portchester Library talking about Silent Running crime novel Pauline Rowson is also author of  two standalone crime novels and the first in a new crime series, introducing former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik in Silent Running published by Severn House in 2015. Silent Running has been hailed in the USA by Booklist as "A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good new series—action fans need Marvik on their radar."

The second in the Art Marvik marine crime series, Dangerous Cargo, is to be published in spring 2016.
