Entertaining those young at heart with chilling tales of murder

Pauline Rowson entertains the audience with tales of murderA real blast from the past this when I was invited to entertain the lovely ladies of the Young at Heart Club (part of Brandon Care) on Wednesday 5 February 2015.  They certainly lived up to their name.  They were a very lively bunch.

Against the backdrop of fierce winds, torrential rain and thunder I talked about murder mystery and mayhem. Very appropriate.

I spoke of how I get the ideas for my DI Andy Horton crime novels, how I work up the storyboard and develop characters and how I approach the creative side of writing the novels, now fifteen in the DI Horton series and I also gave a reading from the second in the Horton series, DEADLY WATERS and took lots of questions before signing copies of my crime novels.

Pauline Rowson talking about the DI Horton crime novelsIt was a very enjoyable afternoon.  I was glad it was in doors though and not out in the elements - a very stormy sea for my fictional marine unit with Sergeant Dai Elkins and PC Ripley, and of course with the hunky DI Andy Horton on board! Hope they reached the shore safely.

Since this talk took place in addition to fifteen in the Inspector Andy Horton series, there are four in the Marvik mystery thriller series - Marvik is an undercover investigator for the UK's Police Marine Intelligence Squad - and there are two in my 1950s set mystery series featuring Scotland Yard Inspector Ryga who is sent out to investigate baffling crimes in DEATH IN THE HARBOUR (the Isle of Portland, Dorset) and DEATH IN THE HARBOUR ( Newhaven, East Sussex) with number three in the series DEATH IN THE NETS ( Brixham, Devon) to be published in October 2021.

Events like these sadly stopped in March 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the banning of all social gatherings. I know many people are missing them and I am missing entertaining the lovely audiences.  There are no talks for me booked this year, 2021, at the present although I have been asked if I might be available to speak later in 2021 and I would be delighted to. Can't wait in fact.  I am sincerely hoping that we can soon resume these events.  In the meantime I will be looking back at some I have conducted over the years.

If you would like me to speak to your organisation, company or library please feel free to contact me.
