Glenda Young is an exciting new talent. Her new saga, Pearl of Pit Lane (Headline, November 2019), tells the story of Pearl Edwards, who is left in the care of her aunt Annie when her mother dies. Annie loves Pearl like a daughter but to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table, she asks Pearl to join her in her profession - walking the pit lane at night looking for men willing to pay for her company. Rather than submit to life on the pit lane, Pearl runs away - but even with nothing and nowhere to go, she's determined to survive on her own terms.
Glenda lives in the North-East and has written short stories for Take a Break, My Weekly and The People’s Friend. She was commissioned by The People's Friend to write their first weekly soap opera, Riverside. She is also a fan of Coronation Street, running two fan websites and publishing a number of books based on the show.
