Norman Bates with a Briefcase - new Coronation Street fan book

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog May 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

I'll be talking about my new Coronation Street companion book tomorrow on the radio.  The newly released paperbook is called Norman Bates with a Briefcase and it covers all of the drama of Richard Hillman's reign of terror in Corrie.  

Find out more about the book and how you can get hold of your copy, here. (Available in Canada from

Actor Brian Capron, who played Richard, has written the foreword to the book too.   

Brian Capron says: "Glenda has produced a brilliant account of the rise and fall of Richard. Reading it brought back so many memories, particularly filming the deaths of Duggie, first wife Patricia, Maxine and the vain attempts to kill poor old Emily. Eileen Derbyshire is the sweetest person and we used to laugh and chat together whilst waiting to film a scene and then I'd say, 'Come on Eileen, I've got to try and murder you now!'"

So tune in if you can to BBC Newcastle tomorrow, Monday 2 May. I'll be on the Anna Foster show on BBC Radio Newcastle. It starts at 10am Bank Holiday Monday. You can tune in online here.
