Pauline Rowson, Oscar Wilde and Harold Pinter at Worthing

Pauline Rowson talking about her crime novels at Worthing Library June 2014A trip down memory lane takes me to June 2014 long before the terrible Covid-19 reared its ugly head and put paid to such lovely things as giving talks to readers at libraries and to members of clubs up and down the UK.

On 28 June in 2014 it was a pleasure to entertain the small but perfectly formed audience at Worthing Library.   It was my second talk there, the first given soon after DI Andy Horton DEADLY WATERS (2) was published in 2007,  and now there are 15 in the Inspector Andy Horton series & many more crime novels (21)  and talks under my belt.

Worthing is a seaside town and the largest in the county of West Sussex. It nestles at the foot of the beautiful South Downs, and is ten miles west of Brighton, and eighteen miles east of the cathedral city of Chichester. It’s not mentioned in my crime novels, whereas both Chichester and Brighton are but I think I’ll have to rectify that after hearing about its diverse population from some  members of the audience during my talk I gave. Worthing also boasts that Oscar Wilde and Harold Pinter both at one time lived and worked in the town so I was in good company.

Pauline Rowson explaining how she writes her crime novels to members of the audience at Worthing Library According to Wikipedia "the area around Worthing has been populated for at least 6,000 years and contains Britain's greatest concentration of Stone Age flint mines, which are some of the earliest mines in Europe. For many centuries Worthing was a small mackerel fishing hamlet until in the late 18th century it developed into an elegant Georgian seaside resort and attracted the well-known and wealthy of the day."

Pauline Rowson reading from DI Andy Horton novel The Suffocating Sea, Worthing Library After giving a talk about how I write my crime novels, which are set on the South Coast of England, and the inspiration behind them, I read an extract from The Suffocating Sea (DI Andy Horton 3) then took a lively Q & A session which was followed by a book signing and the chance to talk to members of the audience.

My thanks to all for coming along to hear my talk and to the lovely staff at Worthing Library for asking me to speak and for hosting the event. I hope that one day soon the talks will recommence once Covid-19 is firmly put to bed!
