So far on this series we’ve chatted to the wonderful best-selling  romantic fiction author Milly Johnson, to children’s and young adult author Jo Nadin and to crime and thriller author Will Carver. 

Now we are taking a journey into non fiction, or rather northern history, with journalist turned writer Brian Groom.

His first book Northerners: A History, from the Ice Age to the Present Day, was published in April 2022 by HarperNorth and became a national bestseller. His  second book Made in Manchester: A People’s History of the City that Shaped the Modern World, is due out in May and available to pre-order.
