Welcome to the musings of Penelope Cress...

The longest running show on the West End ‘The Mousetrap’ to re-open soon!

The Mouse Trap - The longest running show on the West End 'The Mousetrap' to re-open soon!

There is no greater mystery crime writing mind than Dame Agatha Christie.

There is no longer running show in London’s West End than ‘The Mousetrap’.

Covid-19 had seen the lights go out in Theatreland, but hopefully they will return soon with this famous play leading the way.

Tickets for shows starting from 23rd October 2020 are on sale now. You can find more detail here.

I have never seen the play, though it has always been on my wish list.

I don’t know about you but I am missing the theatre and ‘live’ performances.

Maybe this is the time to buy some tickets? (Dashing off to check balance on credit card…)

About Me

Untitled design 1 - The longest running show on the West End 'The Mousetrap' to re-open soon!

My name is Penelope Cress and I love a good murder. Don’t you?

In fact, there is nothing I like better than snuggling up with a nice cup of tea and some digestive biscuits and watching some Agatha Christie or Midsomer Murders on the television. Or even better reading the latest cosy mystery on the train at the end of a hard day.

I started to write my own stories a couple of years ago and the result is the exciting Isle of Wesberrey series featuring the sleuthing talents of Reverend Jessamy Ward. It had been such a joy creating this magical island and its quirky inhabitants.

I live with my children and elderly Jack Russell terrier on an island off the Kent coast and Wesberrey has been inspired by the history and attractions of the many amazing towns and villages dotted along the Kent coast.

In my head I imagined the nostalgic world of G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown with the modern day humour of the Vicar of Dibley.  What if there was a place where there were no cars but cats roamed free? A place steeped in history, tradition and ritual that embraced the best things about living in the modern world. A charming English idyll where there just happens to be the odd murder, every other week!

In my research about the local history of my parish church I discovered the legend of the fertility well and the triple goddess. What if Reverend Jess Ward was descended from the original keepers of the well? Is there a way for ancient and modern traditions to peacefully coexist?

I have had great fun creating a world where all of these elements could find a home and I have had even more fun populating this island with some wonderful characters. I love them as my family and I hope that you will grow to love them too.

I am truly honoured that you have come to my website and possibly have read, or are about to read some of my books.

If you would like to keep in touch and hear about all the latest goings on in Wesberrey, competitions, new releases or just some general gossip, please sign up for my free newsletter. To say thank you, I will send you a link to a special sort story Jubilee Jinks (a prequel to the main Wesberrey series) for FREE!

When I’m not writing, or reading murder mysteries, I spend way too much time on Facebook, so I have a special group called the Wesberrey Watchers where I will be sharing all sorts of goodies and members can talk about their favourite characters and so on. If you would like to take part, all you have to do is head over to Facebook and request to join.

I would be delighted to hear from you and welcome any ideas or suggestions for what could happen with the characters as the series unfolds. Ideas for interesting new murder plots are welcome too. I hope the police never have cause to open my search history, they would think I am some kind of serial killer. I promise my only victims are fictional!

Thanks again for popping by, keep in touch…

Penelope

P.S.

I am currently working on a second series which will take me around the world. Watch out for the adventures of Sandra Snoop coming soon…
