Pauline Rowson entertains the audience at Stubbington Library

Pauline Rowson talking to the audience at Stubbington Library about her crime novelsLibraries have always been a great source of talks for me.  Recently the libraries have been closed because of the Coronavirus pandemic but now they are re-opening their doors (July 2020) to their lovely readers and the public.  It will be some time before real talks can resume and audiences like this one at Stubbington Library can come in person to listen to author talks but they will be back.  Until then here are some pictures from my talk to the lovely people at Stubbington Library on 12 July 2016.

I was delighted to talk to a sell out audience about how I plot, research and write my crime novels set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England.

Pauline Rowson answering a question about her crime novels at Stubbington LibraryMany Inspector Andy Horton fans were there to learn more about my rugged and flawed detective who lives on a small yacht in Southsea Marina and rides a Harley Davidson.  DI Andy Horton now features in 15 crime novels (2020).

Pauline Rowson Stubbington Library talking about her crime heroes DI Horton and Art MarvikThey were optioned by top UK production company, Lime Pictures, who wanted to bring the enigmatic sailing detective to the TV screens but sadly that fell through at the last hurdle.  However, you never know, one day Andy Horton might make it to our televisions screens!

Pauline Rowson explaining how she plots her crime novels - Stubbington LibraryI took a lively Q & A session which was followed by a book signing.

 It was a great evening and lovely to meet so many readers. My thanks to Hampshire Libraries and Stubbington Library in organising the event, and to everyone who came.

I will be back!

Death in the Cove by Pauline RowsonSince 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.

In addition to the above there are three mystery thrillers in the Art Marvik series, the former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad.

Art Marvik Mystery Thrillers by Pauline Rowson"Fans of Rowson’s DI Andy Horton books will be delighted with her new series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik.A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed, combined with a likable, smart, tough, but all too human hero, make this a cracking-good new series—action fans need Marvik on their radar." Booklist on SILENT RUNNING.

The ART MARVIK series of mystery thrillers will be simultaneous published in paperback and ebook, on Kindle, Kobo, Apple Books and Google on 14 September 2020 - Available to pre-order

My crime novels have been highly acclaimed and translated into several languages.  Multi layered and complex, they contain compelling crimes, diverse characters and are full of twists and turns all played out against the dramatic and powerfully evocative British marine landscape of the south coast of England.
