A great audience at Southampton listened to Pauline Rowson relay the exploits of DI Andy Horton

Over a hundred and fifty people packed the hall in Southampton on 1 April to hear me talk about the writing process and ther DI Andy Horton crime series set on the South Coast of England.

I entertained  members of Southampton U3A with the exploits of the rugged and flawed detective, and talked about the inspiration behind the series which is published in the UK and USA by Severn House and which has been translated into several languages.

I spoke about how I plot and research the police procedural crime novels and I gave a reading from The Suffocating Sea, number three in the Horton series, before taking a number of questions from the floor.

Shroud of Evil, the eleventh DI Andy Horton crime novels is now published in the the UK and Commonwealth this month in hardcover, and will be published in the USA in August, when it will also be released as an ebook.

It was a fantastic event and books were very quickly sold out. U3A audiences are always a delight to speak to.
