185 Junior Fiction/The Thirteenth: G.L. Twynham

ITEM: One author signed upside down backwards copy of the junior novel ‘The Thirteenth’ by UK author G.L.Twynham.

DETAILS: Introducing Val Saunders, a young girl with a huge destiny that is somehow linked to the strange, 13-symbol tattoo she mysteriously finds etched in her arm one morning.

‘The Thirteenth’ is up for the Lincolnshire Young People’s Book Awards 2011, which will be voted for by school children across the county. Facing competition from esteemed authors Emily Gale, Maggie Stiefvater, Suzanne LaFleur and Rosemary Hayes. The first in a six part saga, The Thirteenth quickly established a huge fanbase across the UK and thanks to this and the support of the media, G.L. Twynham forged ahead with a second book. The Turncoats was officially launched in Waterstone’s on October 27th, 2010, promptly reaching number 1 in their chart. Amazing!

CV:  Born in Leicestershire, G.L. Twynham moved to Menorca as a teen where she lived and worked for 11 years as a humble waitress in her family’s restaurant. She returned to the UK and eventually settled in Lincolnshire, where she still lives with her young daughter. With no qualifications and few employment opportunities, she was facing dead end job after dead end job.

Instead of letting herself get stuck in a rut, she decided to fulfil her lifetime ambition by writing a book about the one thing she says had been missing throughout her entire childhood – a British female super heroine!
