PAGE TURNER: Rickmansworth writer becomes international success

 Published on: 21st November 2021   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Rickmansworth resident has become a successful international author after taking the plunge of self-publishing her own book.

Alexis Noble has always loved to write but it wasn’t until summer 2021 she published her latest novel called Play Fair: You can’t always have what you want via Amazon. 

The crime-thriller, which is inspired by local locations in Rickmansworth and Chorleywood has smashed sales expectations and reached bookworms as far as America and the Cayman Islands.

Alexis said: “I have always loved watching and reading crime dramas, the challenge of guessing what happened and ‘whodunit’. I started the novel a few years ago, but alongside a full-time job, it took a while to write. When the pandemic hit I was furloughed for a few months and had more time to revisit it.”

The plot focuses on the body of a dead man being found on the riverbank of a sleepy town, sending shockwaves through the close-knit community. PC Carly Cook, a character loosely based on a friend of author Alexis, is determined to get to the bottom of the murder mystery, by getting as close as she can to all those connected, to find out who killed him and their motivations.

Alexis was apprehensive to make her crime novel public, but was encouraged by her best friend, who helped her proof-read the book, to take the plunge and self publish on Amazon, which she said was an easy process.

She added that she has received great reviews from the public for her debut published novel, which has spurred her on to write the sequel which she hopes to publish by summer 2022.
