The University of the Third Age (U3A) has a network of U3As across the country, which provide life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities for retired and semi-retired people who come together to learn, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery. Members share their skills and life experiences. The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
Pauline Rowson talked about how she draws the inspiration for her crime novels from locations along the South Coast of England; how she works up ideas for the novels, develops characters and devises and maps out plot lines. Her crime novels have been hailed in the USA and the UK as, 'Exemplary, 'Compelling,' 'Cleverly plotted,' and the 'Best in British Crime Fiction.'
Her talk was followed by a lively Question and Answer session and a book signing. Pauline Rowson says, 'The audience were great. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to them.'
