Entertaining the ladies of the National Association of Tangent - lunchtime guest speaker

I was delighted to be the lunchtime guest speaker at the Southampton branch of the National Association of Tangent on a cold Tuesday on the 20 January.  The lunch was held in the Keats Restaurant, Ampfield, near Romsey in Hampshire and a very good lunch it was too with great company.  After the two course lunch I entertained the audience with tales of my crime heroes and especially the exploits of my rugged and flawed detective DI Andy Horton.  This was followed by questions and a book signing.

I explained how I write my crime novels, showing examples of my plot lines, and character sketches and I explained where I draw my inspiration from which is primarily locations along the South Coast of England and in DI Andy Horton's case is Portsmouth and surrounding area and the Isle of Wight.
