Columns & Essays

Since 2010 I’ve been writing monthly columns for two local magazines, the multiple award-winning Tetbury Advertiser and the Hawkesbury Parish News, and I’ve gathered these wide-ranging columns into two books now available in paperback and digital formats:

  • All Part of the Charm combines my Hawkesbury Parish News columns with humorous essays about my first impressions of village life
  • Young By Name includes my Tetbury Advertiser columns

What Readers Say

“This book is totally charming… These are little vignettes of village life and what it is to be human that make you just want to pack up and move there straight away.” – Lynne Pardoe

“The topics of this gifted essayist and Debbie Young’s fascination with her Cotswold universe is appealing and evocative… Life in the Cotswold village of Hawkesbury Upton and the impact that national events and celebrations have upon that microcosm is faithfully recorded, painted in Debbie Young’s humorous, colourful and gentle fashion. Debbie Young is a subtle and perceptive exponent of the art [of the essayist]which, given her literary skills, is very much alive.” – Celia Boyd
