North East Group: Cosy Crime with Glenda Young

4 March @ 12:00 - 14:00 GMT


Join our North East Group on Saturday 4 March from 12pm. This month we will be joined by prolific cosy crime and saga writer Glenda Young is the first guest speaker at the relaunched programme of monthly events for authors in the North East of England. Glenda will be in conversation with Liz Dean.

The Sunderland-based author has a three-book deal to write “cosy crime” stories, featuring a Scarborough bed & breakfast, and her saga novels are set in the coalmining village of Ryhope, where she was born and bred. Her cosy crimes were shortlisted in the Dead Good Readers’ Awards 2022 for the Best New Crime Series in the New Kid on the Block category – up against Richard Osman and Val McDermid.

Glenda has also built an impressive reputation in soap opera and as an award-winning short story writer – she was one of just six finalists in the coveted Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais Comedy Award 2019. 

The interview will be followed by a Q&A session and optional lunch and networking. Attendance at this event is free, but by ticket only as space is limited to 20 people. Members will pay for their food and drink at the bar on the day.

We’ll meet at Town Wall, Pink Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5HX.
