Pauline Rowson guest lecturer to Criminology and Forensic Studies Students

Pauline Rowson talking to students about crime writing at the ICJS University of Portsmouth Feb. 2015It was great to meet some of the second year Criminology and Forensic Studies students at the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, University of Portsmouth on Tuesday 17 February where I talked about crime writing and how I research, plot and write my crime novels. I hope that it provided an interesting insight for the students. 



I took the students through how I map out my crime novels using mind maps and plot lines.  I've been told by a former detective of the Hong Kong police that my workings out are exactly how they used to map out the crimes they investigated, so there you have it.

Experts from the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies (ICJS) at University of Portsmouth have attended CSI Portsmouth, an annual event that I organise with Portsmouth City Council Library Service where I bring crime fact and fiction together with crime authors, crime experts and police in two lively panel debates. Members of staff from the ICJS have also helped me considerably with research.
