Karen McCombie

Karen McCombie began her writing career working as a journalist on teenage girls’ magazines. It is this, alongside her collection of childhood diaries and a bad habit of listening to conversations on buses when school is coming out, which have inspired her quirky humour and endearing characters. She has written over 80 books, and her series Ally’s World for Scholastic sold over 200,000 copies. Her hobbies include scribbling random observations in her notebooks, brushing cat hair from the keyboard of her laptop and posting nonsense on Instagram. She lives in Crouch End, London.
