Billy Young

Billy Young is a father of two children, Tammy and Calum. He has worked in many fields throughout his life as well as spending many years trying to find work. Writing has always been a part of his life from an early age but he only published his first children's book, Teddy the Bear, in 2007; originally a story written for his son to scare away the monsters under the bed. He has been with his partner Margaret or Magz as he calls her, since 1993.

He has stayed most of his life in Scotland where he was born on June 8th, 1967; though he did live in Liverpool for four years during the late 1980s. Of all the job he has done throughout his life, he said that the one he enjoyed most, apart from writing, was working at a local theme park where he was often known to make up stories to entertain the customers.

A Winter Journey was published in June 2008.
A Winter Journey by Billy Young Sandy travels by coach through a snowy night with his work mates two weeks before Christmas. They travel from Dumfriesshire up through the Scottish Uplands’ passes towards Ayrshire. To while away they’re time they joke amongst themselves in a nightly ritual as the snow slowly clears to reveal the hills and mountains in all their wintertime splendour, which all go unnoticed by the tried and sleepy workers as they travel onwards into cold night, homeward bound.

Julie Elizabeth Powell, author of Gone said: “It's amazing how little a good writer needs to create an interesting story. With a cast of colourful characters, we are led on this snowy journey to a surprising end.”

Billy's latest book of horror, Banshee Angel of Judgement, a story of revenge for the false accusation of witchcraft was published in November 2008.
