Hot stuff for the gentlemen of New Forest Probus on the hottest day of 2015

Pauline Rowson entertaining the gentlemen of New Forest North Probus July 2015Talking about crime in a heatwave might bring the temperature down  if it's a chilling tale but it was still hot stuff in The Bell Inn, Brook, in the New Forest on 1 July when I gave a talk to the lovely gentlemen of New Forest North Probus on the hottest day of 2015 (so far) and the hottest July day in the UK ever!

Cows heading for a drink at The Bell Inn, New Forest the heatwave makes us all thirsty July 2015The Bell Inn is a beautiful old pub in one of the loveliest parts of the New Forest where amazingly the cattle roam the roads freely along with the ponies.  Here are two cows taking advantage of the shade close to the Bell Inn hotel, perhaps they're waiting for someone to buy them a drink!

Pauline Rowson talking about how she develops her characters in her crime novels-New Forest North Probus July 2015.It was a stifling hot afternoon but I'm delighted that no one fell asleep during my talk as I took the audience through how I plan, plot, research and write my crime novels, how I create the characters and where I draw my inspiration from, which is the sea on the South Coast of England where my novels are primarily set although my new hero, former marine commando Art Marvik, introduced in SILENT RUNNING does stray further afield on his dangerous missions.

Pauline Rowson talking about the DI Andy Horton crime novel Shroud of Evil - New Forest North Probus- July 2015I also talked about my flawed and rugged sailing detective, DI Andy Horton, the background to his quest to find the truth behind his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago and the many crimes he is pulled in to help solve on his home patch of Portsmouth and across the Solent on the Isle of Wight.

Pauline Rowson answering a question-New Forest North Probus July 2015The audience were very appreciative and asked lots of questions, after which I signed copies of my crime novels.

It was a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you to New Forest North Probus for asking me to speak.
