September 18, 2015 Camilla Läckberg worked as an economist in Stockholm until a course in creative writing triggered a drastic career change. Her novels have all been #1 bestsellers in Sweden. Set in Fjällbacka--where Läckberg lives--her recent novels include The Stranger, The Hidden Child and The Drowning, which is just out from Pegasus Books.

Chance of something like that happening is *extremely* low. Apple is fighting tooth and nail any possibility of ANY scripting/programming tool being available for iPad.
