Karen McCombie is from Aberdeen but now lives in North London with her husband and four fat cats.
Karen is now a full-time writer but before that she worked for several teen magazines such as J17 and Sugar in a variety roles – everything from Fashion Editor to Features Editor!
Her highly successful series is Ally’s World. Ally Love is thirteen and lives with her weird family in a falling down house in Crouch End. Her eccentric mother’s not around so it’s just Dad, the four Love children and an array of pets including a three-legged cat, a vicious hamster and some stick insects.
When not writing Karen spends her time belly-dancing!
