What's on in November

CSI Portsmouth where crime fiction meets crime factNovember kicks off tomorrow (2 November) with the very popular CSI Portsmouth where I will be moderating two panels of crime authors and crime experts during a lively and highly informative one day event at the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

This is the fourth year of the annual CSI Portsmouth event which is growing in popularity every year and is now a firm fixture in the crime fiction calendar.  It came about from an idea I had in 2010 to bring crime authors and police and crime experts together to debate crime fiction versus crime fact. With the support of Portsmouth City Council Library Service and the Hayling Island Bookshop, CSI Portsmouth became a reality and part of Portsmouth BookFest.

Taking part alongside me at CSI Portsmouth 2013 are crime authors S. J Bolton, Natasha Cooper, and Kerry Wilkinson, along with crime experts  Michael Ellis, Drugs Intelligence Officer, Hampshire Police; Forensic toxicologist Dr Alex Allan, co-founder of Triple A Forensics and consultant with Manlove Forensics; Sergeant Tony Birr of Hampshire Police Marine Unit; Brian Chappell MBE, a former Detective Chief Inspector with the Metropolitan Police, New Scotland Yard and now a senior lecturer at the Institute ofCriminal Justice Studies at the University of Portsmouth.

Also present throughout the day are the Hampshire Police Fingerprint Bureau Team,  a mock up crime scene provided by students from the forensic science course at South Downs College and a forensic display by the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, Portsmouth University on Entomology (maggots, flies) finger mark development (chemical treatments), trace evidence, and DNA.  The event has also been sponsored by Bello, an imprint of Pan Macmillan, bringing lost classics back to life.

I'll be posting lots of photographs and giving a write up of the event here over next week.

You can see all my events for the remainder of 2013 and for 2014 on the events page on this website.

On the writing front it's on with writing the new DI Andy Horton crime novel, the twelfth in the series.  DI Horton number eleven is with my publisher, Severn House, and I'll be announcing the publication date for this soon.
