Fugelmere Probus Club of Fleet Hooked on Crime

Fugelmere Probus, Fleet, Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novelsThe audience at Fugelmere Probus Club of Fleet in North Hampshire were hooked on crime of the fictional type I'm glad to say as they listened intently to my talk earlier this week on how I write my crime novels set on the South Coast of England.

The aims of the Probus Clubs are "To promote fellowship among members by holding a monthly luncheon meeting and by promoting other activities".

Pauline Rowson talking about the idea behind In Cold DaylightMembership is open to men aged 60 or over, or who have partially or fully retired from professional or business activities.  There are many Probus clubs around the UK and I have had the pleasure at speaking to quite a few.  On this occasion the men were joined by their wives, partners and widows of previous members and it was lovely to see so many people there.

Fugelmere Probus, Fleet, Pauline Rowson talking about plot outlinesI took them 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 usually locations around the Solent area where my novels are primarily set although my new hero, former Royal Marine Commando, Art Marvik, introduced in Silent Running does stray further afield on his dangerous missions. And is shortly to appear in his next mission in Dangerous Cargo to be published in the UK on 31 May 2016 and in the USA on 1 September 2016.

Fugelmere Probus, Fleet, crime author Pauline Rowson double troubleI, of course, also talked about my flawed and rugged sailing detective, DI Andy Horton, the crimes he solves on his home patch of Portsmouth and across the Solent on the Isle of Wight and his quest to find the truth behind his mother's disappearance over thirty years ago.

The audience were appreciative, attentive and awake despite their lovely lunch in the Lismoyne Hotel, Fleet.  They asked lots of questions, after which I was honoured to be asked to sign copies of my crime novels.

It was a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you for asking me to speak.
