More drinks at CrimeFest:Pauline Rowson at her publisher's drinks party and the CWA Daggers Shortlist Announcement Reception

After the Severn House drinks party on 25 May at CrimeFest it was time for another drinks reception this time hosted by CrimeFest and with the purpose of announcing those authors shortlisted for some of the prestigious Crime Writers’ Association (CWA) Daggers Shortlist. Here are some photographs from the event where I was lucky enough to meet up with some DI Horton fans and chat to them about the marine mystery crime novels and my crime writing.

Awaiting the announcement of the Daggers Shortlist

 And finally CrimeFest wouldn't be CrimeFest without me giving Matt Hilton his annual hug.  We live at opposite ends of England but I might just get to hug Matt before next April. Look out for news of CSI Portsmouth 2012!!!
