An author from Rushden was on hand at a county library to sign copies of her debut thriller.

Jess Sturman-Coombs, 34, published her book Poker Face at a launch party in November last year.

The thriller is the first of a series of four books and has already sold 150 copies.

In a bid to sell more copies and earn a publishing contract to realease the remaining three books, Mrs Sturman-Coombs held the book-signing day at Wellingborough Library on March 3.

She said: “The event proved a good way of getting my name out there and people interested in the book.

“Once they read it I hope they want to read the next in the series.”

The full-time mother wrote all four books in the series over two years.

The books follow the life of a young woman who becomes involved in the Mafia.

After leaving school with no qualifications she lands herself a job with her town firm.

But soon she finds her boss is connected to underground crime and becomes involved herself.
