CSI Winchester where crime fiction met crime fact a great success

CSI WInchester panel, Carolyn Lovell, Angela Hicken, Pauline Rowson,Jane Aston, Natasha Cooper and Heather FosterI really can't believe this was seven years ago. It's not possible, where has the time gone? CSI Winchester was a great success in 2014, such fun too with a lovely panel and a great audience. We were scheduled to repeat the event in 2020 but sadly the Coronavirus pandemic saw that off and put paid to all social gatherings, hence my trip down memory lane. We are all missing these events so much

On 8 March 2014 over a hundred people packed the performance hall at Winchester Discovery Centre in Hampshire for CSI Winchester to listen to me and my fellow crime author Natasha Cooper  debate crime fiction and crime fact with the fabulous crime experts from Hampshire Police, Jane Aston, Supervisor Fingerprint Examiner and Carolyn Lovell, then Head of Operations for Hampshire Police Crime Scene Investigations both of whom have given me considerable help with research for my crime novels.

CSI Winchester was a morning event. It was modelled on the highly successful one day event, CSI Portsmouth, which I helped to organize for many years.

She put questions to the panelists and it was then opened up to the floor. There was a book signing to follow and the chance for the audience to talk to the authors and experts, and to have their fingerprint taken and pressed into a keep sake key ring.

The books were sold by independent bookshop P & G Wells of Winchester.

My sincere and huge thanks to Hampshire Police,  Winchester Library and the audience for making it so successful.

Since this talk took place, in addition to fifteen in the Inspector Andy Horton series, there are four in the Marvik mystery thriller series and two in my 1950s set mystery series featuring Scotland Yard Inspector Ryga who is sent out to investigate baffling crimes in DEATH IN THE COVE (the Isle of Portland, Dorset) and DEATH IN THE HARBOUR ( Newhaven, East Sussex) with number three in the series DEATH IN THE NETS (Brixham, Devon) to be published in October 2021.

There are no talks for me booked this year, 2021, at the present although I have been asked if I might be available to speak later in 2021 - Covid -19 permitting - and I would be delighted to. Can't wait in fact.  I am sincerely hoping that we can soon resume these events.

If you would like me to speak to your organisation, company or library please feel free to
contact me.
