Entertaining Bournemouth Probus back in pre-Covid 19 days

Pauline Rowson talking about crime writing and her crime novelsContinuing my theme of looking back at my talks over the years, in the absence of them in 2020 because of the rules and regulations surrounding  Covid-19, I was delighted to entertain members of  Bournemouth Probus Club on Tuesday 9 October 2018 with tales of my crime busting heroes - the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and  undercover investigator, Art Marvik a former Royal Marine Commando.

I explained how I comes up with ideas for my crime novels of which there are now twenty-one and how I turn these ideas into my multi-layered and gripping plots.

Bournemouth Probus - Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novelsHailed in the UK, USA and Commonwealth as the "Best of British crime fiction" "A good read for mystery lovers," "gripping, compelling and full of twists and turns."

There are now fifteen in the Inspector Andy Horton police procedural series set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight; three Art Marvik mystery thrillers  set along the south coast including the Jurassic coast of Dorset and the Downs of East Sussex, Beachy Head and Cuckmere Haven; and two in the 1950s set mystery series featuring Inspector Ryga, plus two standalone thrillers.
