Ally Carter, bestselling author, was born Sarah Leigh Fogleman on January 1, 1974. She graduated from the Oklahoma State University and Cornell University. Ally's first book, Cheating at Solitaire, was released in 2005 and tells the story of a famously single self-help guru who becomes very publicly linked to one of Hollywood's hottest up-and-coming male stars. Carter's first young-adult novel was I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (the first book in her Gallagher Girls Series). It is the story of a girl who goes to a prestigious spy school and what happens when she falls for a normal boy who has no idea who she really is. It was selected as a Texas Lone Star reading list book for 2007-2008. Other books in the Gallagher Girl Series are Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover, Only the Good Spy Young, Out of Sight, Out of Time, and United We Spy. Ally's other novels include Heist Society and Uncommon Criminals. (Publisher Provided) — biography from I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You… (more)
