Photos from my talk to Second Year Criminology and Forensic Studies Students at the University of Portsmouth

It was great to meet so many of the second year Criminology and Forensic Studies students at the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, University of Portsmouth on Tuesday 17 February where I talked about crime writing and how I research, plot and write my crime novels. I hope that it provided an interesting insight for the students.

I took the students through how I map out my crime novels using mind maps and plot lines.  I've been told by a former detective of the Hong Kong police that my workings out are exactly how they used to map out the crimes they investigated, so there you have it.
