Bookham audience enthralled with tales of crime from Pauline Rowson

Pauline Rowson entertaining the audience at Bookham June 2016Just look at that crowd all tightly packed together - yes a thing of the past in 2020 with the Covid-19 virus pandemic.  But on 5 July 2016  I was entertaining members of Bookham U3A in Surrey with tales of murder and mystery with my crime busting heroes, the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton  (now 15 in the series - 2020) and Art Marvik, the troubled former Royal Marine Commando,  now working undercover for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad, ( 3 in the series)

Since this talk took place I also have a new hero on the block, Scotland Yard's Inspector Ryga who is sent out to solve coastal crimes.  His first is on the Isle of Portland, Dorset when the body of a man in a pin-striped suit is found dead on Church Ope Cove - DEATH IN THE COVE. The second Inspector Ryga 1950 set mystery is DEATH IN THE HARBOUR and will be published on 2 November in paperback, e book and on Kindle. It is available to pre-order. Like the first in the series it is also available as an audio book. 

In DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, Ryga is sent to Newhaven, East Sussex  to unravel the mystery of why an ordinary police constable was murdered and his wife has gone missing.

Back to Bookham - over a hundred and twenty people sat enthralled as I spoke about how I write my crime novels set against the backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England.
The University of the Third Age (U3A) through its network of U3As across the country, provides 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.

It is a great shame that their meetings can not proceed in 2020 with the Covid-19 virus rife but hopefully things might resume in 2021.

Pauline Rowson talking about the inspiration behind her crime novelsI talked about I draw the inspiration for my crime novels from locations, primarily in the Solent area but also along the South Coast of England; how I work up ideas for the novels, develop characters and devise and maps out plot lines.

Pauline Rowson signing her crime novels at Bookham U3AMy crime novels have been hailed in the USA and the UK as 'Exemplary, 'Compelling,' 'Cleverly plotted,' and the 'Best in British Crime Fiction.' 

My talk  was followed by a lively Question and Answer session and a book signing. 

 The audience were great. I  thoroughly enjoyed talking to them.'
