The other judges, also well known local people, are Annabel Reddick of Burrows Bookshop and Brenda Mead from Cambridge Library.
Mary Nichols is an experienced and successful writer, whose book The Summer House (2009), was for a while top of the Amazon rankings for sagas.
She is also a prolific writer of Mills and Boons novels.
