Samantha MackintoshSamantha Mackintosh has a fifteen-year career in publishing behind her, and her current day job is working in the attic like a madwoman writing her children’s books. She was born in Zambia, grew up in South Africa and now lives in Surrey with her two children and seven ailing tropical fish. Oh no. Make that six.

Her first novel Kisses for Lula was published by Egmont in 2010, and Lula does the Hula in 2011. Both were shortlisted for the Queen of Teen Award.

Gallimard Jeunesse will publish the first volume of her Four Walls quartet  in 2019.


Samantha MackintoshKisses for Lula features the hilarious twisting-turning plots and ludicrous escapades of a brand new star, Lula Bird! Lula Bird is gorgeous, funny and dreading her birthday because you can't turn 16 if you've never been kissed...So why does every boy in Hambledon run a mile the second she bats her eyelids? The fact is, they fear for their lives. Rumour has it Lula's been jinxed! And it's not as if that's her only problem: Lula thinks she has a stalker, her dad keeps sneaking out at night with a lady's handbag, and a mysterious theft is threatening to bring the town to its knees...
