Synopsis

Twists, Turns & 100% Tilda by Karen McCombie

Spooky and spookier! Stella doesn't know whether to be fascinated or freaked out by the gloomy goth girl, Tilda. And she's got a few other things to figure out too - like who's behind the strange coded notes pinned up around town? This is a sea-sidey, sun-shiney series from the bestselling author of Ally's World .

About the Author

Karen McCombie grew up in Aberdeen, Scotland, where she learnt to walk at an angle of 45 degrees against the biting north wind. Her hobbies were drawing, keeping scrapbooks, writing short stories and wearing thermal underwear (except for the three days in summer when it was warm). Her primary-school teacher, Miss Thompson, once told Karen that she should be an author when she grew up. Karen thinks Miss Thompson was only trying to be nice, but is very, very glad she turned out to be right.

As an adult, Karen studied graphic design and communication, before landing a job as a trainee magazine journalist at a Scottish publisher. A few years later, she packed up all her worldly possessions and cat, Cecy, and headed to London for a job with teen magazine Just 17. She worked for several other magazines - including Sugar - before she thought about trying to write a book. She still lives in London, writing books for a living (hurray!), surrounded by cats as well as a husband, who likes to type silly lines into her stories when she's not looking. Karen and her husband have a lovely little daughter called Milly, who thinks her mum's job is to make Playdough cookies.

As an artist, Karen is the author of the best-selling Ally's World series, as well as the Stella Etc. books and Marshmallow Magic and the Wild Rose Rouge. She's also written several books for older teens, including My Funny Valentine and In Sarah's Shadow. Karen loves writing and her fattest cat, Bysshe, loves to watch her writing. The only problem is, he likes to get right up close, and often the keyboard disappears under folds of ginger fur as Bysshe settles himself down for a purr and a stare.
