My debut crime novel – Victim Support

Hot off the press!

I’ve got some exciting news to report! After a lot of hard work, the paperback version of my debut murder mystery novel Victim Support, published by my own press Norsey Press, is out now! It features my female police detective character Inspector Sam Cree and is set in the fictional town of ‘Norsey’, based loosely on Billericay in Essex where we lived for 7 years. We’ve just moved to Hertford – but more on that soon. Let’s just say it’s been a crazy month.

If you’re in Billericay on Saturday 10th December, you can meet me in person at my book signing which is taking place at 2.30pm-5.30pm at the Coach House, Billericay Town Council offices, Crown Yard, off the High Street (near Waitrose car park). I’ll be doing a reading from the book from 3.30pm onwards and you can get your signed copy discounted to £6 on the day.

If you can’t make the signing but would still like a signed copy of the book (£6.99) please contact me directly at or you can buy a signed copy from me via from Norsey Press marketplace sellers.

Here’s a little taster of the plot:

When twin boys go missing, DI Cree and her colleagues on the Norsey Force are already overstretched. Then, a student and an elderly woman are mysteriously gunned down and evidence suggests a sniper is at work. In the background of each murder is an unsolved crime. Is revenge the motive or something deeper? Sam and her boss, Chief Inspector Bill Irons, face a race against time to find the missing boys and the killer before he strikes again.

This is my third book – my first was Bedroom DJ: A Beginner’s Guide and my second The Frugal Life: How to spend less and live more, which is still selling in these tough times – but Victim Support is my first attempt at fiction and I’ve been working on it for a number of years on and off. I’m very excited!

    Hi Piper – well done missus! Delighted to read your news and I’ve Facebooked it to my lot….

    Wishing I were nearer (am in Lyme Regis) as I would definitely pop in for your signing – hope everything goes wonderfully well.

    Love and respect,
