Pauline Rowson entertains Christchurch Library with tales of her fictional crime busting heroes

I was delighted to be invited to talk to the audience at Christchurch Library on Wednesday 10 October, as part of Libraries Week, about my crime novels and my crime fiction heroes, the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and undercover investigator, Art Marvik a former Royal Marine Commando.
I explained how locations along the south coast of England provide the inspiration for my crime novels of which there are now nineteen and how I turn these ideas into multi-layered and gripping plots. The Inspector Andy Horton police procedural series is set in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight; and the three Art Marvik mystery thrillers are set along the south coast including the Jurassic coast of Dorset and the Downs of East Sussex, Beachy Head and Cuckmere Haven. My two standalone thrillers are also set on the south coast of England.

I talked about how I research and write my crime novels and how I create my characters.  Following my talk there was a lively question and answer session and a book signing.

It was a pleasure to meet everyone at Bournemouth Probus C…
