What's happening in March - my events and new publications

March sees the publication in Large Print of the DI Andy Horton novel Footsteps on the Shore, the fifth in the Horton series.

Footsteps on the Shore is already available as an e book and in paperback and I’m delighted that it is to be published in Large Print by Severn House on 28 March. 

It attracted some great reviews in America and the UK.

'Deserves mention in the same breath as works in the upper echelon of American procedurals (those by Ed McBain or Joseph Wambaugh for example) and their British counterparts, including the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey.  Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms.’ Booklist, Starred Review


March also sees me undertaking two speaking engagements. The first of these is on 13 March to Mengeham WI and the second a lunchtime engagement where I will be talking to the  Read For Life Portsmouth Volunteers on 26 March.

Read for Life is a community interest social enterprise that trains and supports volunteers to help primary school children with their reading. It achieves great success with one hundred percent of children helped in this way showing an improvement in reading and ninety four percent an improvement in self-confidence. The group works with schools who are asked to contribute a small amount per volunteer per financial year towards the cost of providing the service for dedicated support of one hour per week.  It’s an excellent scheme helping children reach their full potential.

I'm looking forward to giving both talks.  In between I will be pressing on with writing the next DI Andy Horton crime novel and working on a new crime series.
