Pauline Rowson thrills the audience at Fordingbridge Library- Pre Coronavirus Days!

Pauline Rowson talking to readers at Fordingbridge LibraryThe small country town of Fordingbridge in the New Forest on the banks of the River Avon once famous for its smuggling and the infamous Captain Diamond, the 'Smuggler King', was the location for another crime this time fictional when I  entertained readers atFordingbridge Library with tales of my fictional crime busting heroes, Inspector Andy Horton and undercover investigator, Art Marvik on Thursday 19 October 2017.

This was three years before Coronavirus and all its consequences reared its ugly and unwelcome head, putting paid to so much of our social interchange including talks like this, although I am delighted that the libraries have re-opened.  So here I am revisiting some of my previous talks and feeling nostalgic.

I explained how I research my crime novels, including the police and forensic research and how I create her characters and plot lines. This was followed by a lively question and answer session.

Pauline Rowson explaining a point on crime writing at Fordingbridge LibraryFordingbridge, recorded in the Domesday book, has evolved through the years from `Forde' and `Bridge'. The first Great Bridge, built in medieval times, is upstream from the ford and is a major feature of the town with its seven graceful arches.  Once an industrial town and commercial centre, Fordingbridge boasted many trades such as brick making, pottery and textiles.

The audience were as usual delightful and it was a great pleasure to visit Fordingbridge Library and to meet some of the lovely people there.

Here's hoping that events like these can resume in 2021!
