Pauline Rowson entertains a packed audience at Totton South U3A

A packed audience at Totton South U3A listening to Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novelsAlmost a hundred people packed Colbury Memorial Hall on the edge of the New Forest, Hampshire on a very hot summer's day in June to listen to me talking about how I research, plot and write my crime novels. I talked about the DI Andy Horton series set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England.  The DI Andy Horton crime novels have recently been optioned for TV by one of the UK's top television production companies, Lime Pictures, who are seeking to bring the flawed and rugged, sailing  detective, Andy Horton, to the TV screens.

I also spoke about my new hero, former marine commando, Art Marvik, in Silent Running, and my stand alone thrillers, In Cold Daylight and In For The Kill.

Pauline Rowson explaining how she writes her crime novels to members of Totton South U3A June 2015I explained where I draw my ideas from, which is often from locations on the South Coast of England or from overheard conversations; how I create my characters using mind maps; how I use a storyboard to plot the novels and how I research them.

After my talk there was as usual a Q & A which was followed by a book signing over tea.
