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 novelsA blast from the past - June 26 2015 when social distancing was something you practiced if the family down your street weren't of your 'class'! Here I am entertaining a packed audience at Totton South U3A on a hot summer's day with tales of my crime fiction heroes-ah happy days - pre Coronavirus!

Almost 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.

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.
