Pauline Rowson talks to Katie Martin, BBC Radio Solent about crime novels and CSI Portsmouth

Pauline Rowson and DI Mandy Horsburgh on the Katie Martin Show BBC Radio SolentI was interviewed on the Katie Martin Show, BBC Radio Solent on 11 August along with DI Mandy Horsburg, Hampshire Police, about crime fiction and how it differs from crime fact.  It was also a great opportunity to talk about CSI Portsmouth, a one day event that brings crime fiction and fact together in two panel debates. CSI Portsmouth is being held on Saturday 8 November.

CSI Portsmouth, sponsored by Bello, publisher Pan Macmillan’s digital imprint, which brings lost classics back to life, is now in its fifth year. CSI Portsmouth came from an idea I had following many questions I receive from audiences at my talks about how I research my crime novels. CSI Portsmouth discusses, through two panel debates, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, crime fiction and fact. It is being held at The Princess Royal Gallery at the National Museum of the Royal Navy in the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Pauline Rowson and DI Mandy Horsburgh on BBC Radio SolentDI Mandy Horsburgh who is one of our panel guests at CSI Portsmouth  is an Inspector at Operation Fortress, one of the biggest, most significant stand-alone projects ever to be launched by the Constabulary, with its own 31-strong dedicated investigation and enforcement team made up of officers and staff drawn from across the force. The team investigate the most serious violent drug-related crimes alongside organized criminal groups who pose the most risk to communities.
