A repeat performance for Pauline Rowson at Hamble Valley U3A

Hamble Valley U3A an enraptured audience for Pauline Rowson Here I am for the second time at  Hamble Valley U3A on 12 March 2019 talking about my crime mystery novels, this was before the dreaded Coronavirus struck in 2020 and closed us all down, putting a stop to all social events, boy do we miss them! We are all hoping that social events can resume from summer 2021 onward, keep your fingers and everything crossed!

Meanwhile I am looking back at some of the talks  I have conducted over the years. 

It was the second time that I had been asked to speak to Hamble Valley U3A, my previous talk to them was on a hot July day in 2013 while on this latter occasion it was howling a gale and pouring with rain.  Since then I've had more crime novels published and since this talk yet some more.

I talked about the locations along the south coast of England that have inspired me and how they have provided me with the ideas for my multi-layered, marine-set crime novels, of which there are now twenty-two. I spoke about how I develop these ideas into fast-paced plots.

Hamble Valley U3A Pauline Rowson explaining how she plots her novelsI also explained and demonstrated how I create and develop my characters.

I'm delighted that my mystery crime novels and thrillers have been hailed 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," They have been translated into many languages and are available in paperback, as an ebook, on Amazon Kindle, Kobo and as unabridged audio books.

An Inspector Andy Horton mystery by Pauline RowsonThe Inspector Andy Horton police procedural series is set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight (15); the Art Marvik mystery thrillers (4) along the south coast including the Jurassic coast of Dorset and the Downs of East Sussex, Beachy Head and Cuckmere Haven. My 1950s historical crime fiction series with Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Ryga series (2) is set in Portland Dorset (DEATH IN THE COVE) and Newhaven Port East Sussex (DEATH IN THE HARBOUR. I am also the author of two standalone thrillers, IN COLD DAYLIGHT and IN FOR THE KILL.

DEAD PASSAGE is number fourteen in the Inspector Andy Horton crime series.  A mysterious telephone call sends Horton on a complex and twisted investigation into the death of a local politician twelve years ago and uncovers a trail of lies, secrets and revenge with roots deep in the past.

Hamble Valley U3A Pauline Rowson Book SigningFollowing  my talk there was a lively question and answer session and a book signing. It was a pleasure to entertain  the audience and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone.

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 - Covid -19 permitting - and I would be delighted to. Can't wait in fact.  I am sincerely hoping that we can soon resume these events.

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