Pauline Rowson entertains a packed audience at Chandlers Ford U3A

Pauline Rowson talking to U3A membersIn the words of Victor Meldrew, " I don't believe it" that this event took place in 2013.  Not sure if it's a good thing to look back over my talks as it makes me realize just how quickly time flies but in the absence of new talks this last year (2020/21) because of the Coronavirus pandemic and the banning of all social events I thought a trip down memory lane might fill the gap.

I know many people are missing these events and I am missing entertaining the lovely audiences. But the good news is that my first talk has been booked for 27 July 2021 when hopefully we are all out of these awful lock downs and can freely mix again.  On 27 July 2021 I will be entertaining members of Portsmouth U3A.

Over a hundred people turned out at Chandlers Ford, Southampton, to hear me talk about how I plot and write my crime novels set against the backdrop of the sea on the South Coast of England.

Members of the U3A heard me talk about how I get ideas for my novels, how I develop myr characters and how I plot the novels.

U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

Pauline Rowson explaining how she writes her crime novels
My enigmatic sailing detective,  DI Andy Horton, features in fifteen crime novels with TIDE OF DEATH the first in the series and A DEADLY WAKE number fifteen.  I am currently writing number sixteen ( 2021).

And since this talk took place I have created another crime series, this time set in the 1950s and featuring Scotland Yard detective, Inspector Ryga, who is sent out to solve  baffling coastal crimes. The first is set on Portland Island, Dorset - DEATH IN THE COVE, and the second is set in Newhaven, East Sussex - DEATH IN THE HARBOUR.  Number three in the Inspector Ryga series DEATH IN THE NETS set in Brixham, Devon will be published on 4 October 2021.
