About the Author

Debbie Young lives and writes in a small Gloucestershire village, which inspires and informs her novels, which are full of mystery, mayhem and comedy in a rural Cotswolds setting. She has three established series - the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries (novels), the Staffroom at St Bride's - School Stores for adults (novels), and the Tales from Wendlebury Barrow (quick reads of novelette or novella length). In 2020 one of her novels, Secrets at St Bride's, was shortlisted for the Bookbrunch Selfies Awards for the best independently-published fiction in the UK.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I write warm, witty, feel-good contemporary fiction full of English humour, inspired by life in the Cotswold village which has been my home for over 30 years. Originally self-published, in 2022 I was delighted to win a 13-book contract with the multiple-award-winning Boldwood Books for my novels, a 7-book audio contract with Saga Egmont, and a German rights deal with DP Verlag.

NOVELS

I write two series of novels set in the Cotswolds. Currently working on my eleventh novel, I have been commissioned by Boldwood Books to add a new book to each series every year. .

My Sophie Sayers Village Mystery series begins with "Best Murder in Show". The seven books published so far run the course of a calendar year in the life of the idyllic English Cotswold village of Wendlebury Barrow, and I'm now writing the eighth, to be published by Boldwood Books in the spring of 2023.

My Gemma Lamb Cozy Mystery series is a mashup of romantic comedy, gentle mystery and nostalgia for classic children's school stories. begins with "Dastardly Deeds at St Bride's" (previously published as "Secrets at St Bride's"), and is ollowed by "Sinister Secrets at St Bride's" (formerly "Secrets at St Bride's"). The all-new "Wicked Whispers at St Bride's" will be published by Boldwood Books in November 2022.

By the spring of 2023, all of my novels will be available in all formats in the English language, including ebook, paperback,hardback, large print and audio. DP Verlag are publishing the first three Sophie Sayers novels in German translation as ebooks.

SHORT FICTION

My series of comedy mystery novelettes, Tales from Wendlebury Barrow, is set in the same world as the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries. The first, "The Prtide of Peacocks", is available exclusively to members of my Readers' Club (see below to find out how to get your copy). "The Natter of Knitters" and "The Clutch of Eggs" are available in ebook and paperback, and more stories in this series will follow.

I have published one novella, "Mrs Morris Changes Lanes", a second-chance mid-life romantic comedy with a touch of magical realism, set in the Cotswolds in Spring,

I've also published three themed collections of short stories, "Stocking Fillers", "Marry in Haste", and "Quick Change".

AWARDS

The first St Bride's novel was shortlisted for the 2020 Selfies Award given for the best independently-published fiction in the UK. The sixth Sophie Sayers novel was shortlisted for the same award in 2021.

FREE EBOOK

Receive a free ebook of my comedy novelette "The Pride of Peacocks" when you join my Readers' Club via my website (www.authordebbieyoung.com). I'll also send you a monthly enewsletter to keep you up to date with news of my books and events and insights into my writing life. There is a free prize draw in every issue.

HELPING OTHER WRITERS

When I'm not writing fiction, I'm helping other authors. I'm UK Ambassador for the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), a course tutor for Jericho Writers, and I've written several guidebooks for authors. I frequently speak at events for readers and writers, and I judge of writing competitions. I also write features for magazines such as Mslexia and Romance Matters and for various websites.

LOCAL LIT FEST

Back in 2015, I founded the Hawkesbury Upton Literature Festival in my home village in the Cotswolds. The Festival now takes the form of a year-round series of talks on different themes and genres, each featuring at least three guest authors, with me in the chair. See www.hulitfest.com for more details.

I may be busy, but I am never too tired to curl up with a good book.
