About the Author

Debbie Young has a reputation for wry, witty fiction full of gentle English humour, based on meticulous observation of everyday domestic life.

She has three published collections of short stories, and her work also appears in various anthologies. She is currently writing a series of cosy mystery novels, the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries, set in a small English village with an author as its heroine and a bookseller as the love interest, which will be published in 2017. The first book will be "Best Murder in Show", followed by a series of six titles completing a year in the life of the fictitious village of Wendlebury Barrow: "Trick or Murder", "Murder in the Manger", "Murder by the Book", "Springtime for Murder", "Murder Your Darlings" and "School's Out for Murder".
She has performed her short stories at various litfests and events including the Cheltenham Literature Festival 2016, and is a frequent guest on BBC Radio Gloucestershire and various community radio and television stations. She is a regular member of the panel on BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Book Club slot during the lunchtime programme.

She is the founder of the Hawkesbury Upton Literary Festival (founded April 2015) which provides an annual celebration of books and reading on the closest Saturday to World Book Night, in which all events are free of charge to make it accessible to all.

Her regional reputation is also enhanced by her long-running humorous column in the Tetbury Advertiser, described by its editor as "the jewel in our crown".

She is also an avid reader, reviewing books for various publications including Vine Leaves Literary Journal and on her own blog.

She has been blogging as since 2010 and is very active on social media, with a 10K Twitter following over 1,000 Facebook friends and over 500 "likes" on her Facebook author page. Her YouTube channel includes videos of her performing her stories and speaking at public events and on podcasts.

She also has a high profile in the author community in her role as Commissioning Editor of the Authors Advice Blog for the Alliance of Independent Authors, for which she is UK Ambassador. She also runs three author meet-up groups in Bristol, Cheltenham and Oxfordshire.

She lives and works in the small Cotswold village of Hawkesbury Upton with her Scottish husband and teenage daughter where she is very much involved in the life of its busy rural community. She enjoys travelling in the family camper van in search of adventure, armed only with blank notebooks and reading matter.
