A captive audience for DI Andy Horton at Solent U3A

A captive audience Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novels at Solent U3AI'm continuing my theme of looking back at my talks because of the absence of them since the Covid-19 crisis banned all social gatherings in Britain.  But it won't be long now (hopefully) to when I can post a brand new LIVE talk on my website as I am booked to do my first talk since lock down in March 2020 on 27 July 2021 to Portsmouth U3A. This talk was to Solent U3A on 11 June 2014 when over a hundred people turned out to hear me talk about my crime novels and my flawed and rugged detective, DI Andy Horton.

The enigmatic sailing detective  DI Andy Horton now features in fifteen crime novels with TIDE OF DEATH the first in the series and A DEADLY WAKE number fifteen.  I am currently writing number sixteen (2021). There are also now four in the Marvik, mystery thriller series, with SILENT RUNNING the first, DANGEROUS CARGO (2), LOST VOYAGE (3) and DEAD SEA (4) published in March 2021.

Since this talk I have written a new crime series with Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Ryga, who is sent out to solve  baffling coastal crime. The first is set on Portland Island, Dorset - DEATH IN THE COVE, the second in Newhaven, East Sussex - DEATH IN THE HARBOUR, and number three, DEATH IN THE NETS, set in Brixham, Devon to be published on 4 October 2021.

Crime author Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novels to Solent U3A June 2014I talked about the inspiration behind my crime novels, how I plot, research and write them and how I create the characters.

 After the talk there followed a lively Q & A session and a book signing.
