Pauline Rowson entertains the audience with tales of crime

Emsworth WI audience enthralled by tales of crime with Pauline RowsonWith talks and events cancelled for 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic I'm taking a look back, month by month, at my talks over the years.  Here is one from September 2014

A packed audience at Emsworth Womens Institute sat enthralled by the mechanics of writing a crime novel and the exploits of the flawed and rugged Portsmouth based copper DI Andy Horton when I entertained them on Friday 12 September 2014.

Over fifty members of the WI at Emsworth, a coastal village on the borders of Hampshire and West Sussex, listened enraptured as I entertained them with anecdotes about my crime writing, where and how I draw my inspiration from; how I develop plot lines and create characters.

Pauline Rowson talking to Emsworth WI about her marine mystery crime novelsI also talked about the idea behind my standalone mystery thrillers  In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill, which like the Horton series are set on the South Coast of England.  

Pauline Rowson talking to a packed Emsworth WI about her crime novelsThey were a lovely audience and it was a pleasure talking to them.

I hope that my talks can resume in 2021.
