Utterly Explosive is now available as an audiobook.
I have found a fantastic narrator in Andy Deane. He is a local (Suffolk based) actor with the QuirkHouse Theatre Co based in Bury St Edmunds.
Not surprisingly for a book set in Suffolk, one or two of the characters speak with a local accent and Andy's soft Suffolk accent is excellent easy listening.
With a word like Explosive in the title the action is bound to kick off. When it does, Andy happily adds some fun with the accents of the hot Romanian fruit picker, a smooth-talking Polish fruit farm manager and a threatening Bulgarian thug.
Andy's versatility is great to listen to, as he brings Utterly Explosive to life. He effortlessly changes from his warmly narrated English into the voices of the characters.
Utterly Explosive is now available on Amazon, Audible and iTunes

This is my first audio book.
At some point, several months ago I decided that this should be the first of my Utterly Crime novels to be published in audiobook form. It isn't the first in the series, but for reasons now lost in the mist of time, it was where I decided to start.

It's That Time Of Year Again....
Busy, busy, busy - Pauline is off to Waterstones with Utterly Dusted - her latest book in the Utterly Crime Series - crime novels set in Suffolk.
Pauline will be in the Ipswich Waterstones Buttermarket branch on Thursday November 16th and then in the Bury St Edmunds Waterstones Buttermarket branch on Saturday December 2nd for an 'Utterly Dusted' book promotion and meet the author event.
Otto, featured above, will be wondering where he is supposed to be going - sometimes he complains that it is difficult to keep up!

The 'Writers Cafe' Event
On Wednesday 25th October 2017....
The first 'Writers Cafe' event was held at Oakes Barn on the first day of the first Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival... 3 firsts in one day! Local writers - professional, published, self-published and aspiring, came along to meet peers and public to share work.
It was great fun mingling and networking with local authors and readers at this busy, well organised but informal and friendly venue. Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival Facebook page

Jumping Stilts and Utterly Crushed
Otto isn't too sure what it all means. It is obvious he doesn't quite 'get' what a jumping stilt is, although he stayed around long enough for a couple of promotional photos.
So how do jumping stilts fit into the latest Utterly crime novel? In Utterly Crushed, you'll read about film sets, intrigue, murder, a crushing death and... oh yes, jumping stilts - all set in Suffolk.
Otto and I have worked to infuse a sense of threat and foreboding into the photos - something appropriate for a crime novel. Otto had no problem with that emotion when he saw the stilt - I had more of a problem creating the feel with shutter speed, lighting etc. Luckily it's amazing what you can do with an automatic camera!
