Glenda Young is an exciting new talent. Her new saga, The Tuppenny Child (Headline, May 2019), tells the story of 17 year old Sadie Linthorpe, who arrives in Ryhope, seeking work and a home in the pit village. But Sadie is keeping a secret - she’s searching for her baby girl who was taken from her at birth and cruelly sold by the child's grandmother. But as Sadie's quest begins, a visitor from her past appears - one who could jeopardise the life she's beginning to build and ruin her chances of finding her beloved child forever…

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.
