Sara Shepard Bio

    All about the author of the Pretty Little Liars books.

    For as long as she can reSara Shepard Headshotmember, Sara Shepard has been writing. However, when she was young she also wanted to be a soap opera star, a designer for LEGO, a filmmaker, a claymation artist, a geneticist, and a fashion magazine editor when she grew up. She and her sister have been creating joint artistic and written projects for years, except they’re pretty sure they’re the only ones who find them funny.

    She got her MFA at Brooklyn College and now lives outside Philadelphia, PA with her husband and dogs. Her first adult novel is called The Visibles/ All The Things We Didn’t Say.

    Sara’s bestselling young adult series, Pretty Little Liars, is loosely based on her experiences growing up on Philadelphia’s Main Line…although luckily she never had any serious stalkers. The series has also inspired the ABC Family television series of the same name.

      I have been reading these books since I was in 8th grade…I am now a sophomore in college. They never end!! I love them all and cannot wait to read the next one. I haven’t had as much time to read because of classes, but decided to hammer out the last 200 pages of “Burned” this afternoon. As always, I am too intrigued. Let’s see how long this can go! Thanks for keeping me on the edge of my seat for almost 6 years, now. Cheers!

      Has anybody considered making a forge out of an induction furnace? I’d like to know a little more about electronics-based furnaces.

      As of right now, I have a copy of the pretty little liars novel: Killer. It is lying next to me while I type in this comment inside the library. I want to say that I believe it’s the fourth book in the series and it’s great, nail biting and edge of your seat reads, all four books. I am forty-five and had yet to find a book that kept me hooked and thanks to you and the staff at alloy entertainment and harper teen, I have been doing just that! The books are fantastic!

      I love you books! You have a very unique way of writing and I love it! I started this series last year towards summer time and I would spend every weekend reading. I would sit on my couch and read one of your books in two days! I can still do that and I’m so excited for your next book #15 but technically it’s number seventeen! I hope you continue the series after this next one. I would love to talk to you sometime!

      I would like to comment that I’ve only read the first 5 books of the series, and I could not continue reading the rest, because here in Mexico do not sell copies of the other books in Spanish, and I would like to do me the favor to ask the publisher who translated the first 5 books, translate the rest of the books in the series in Spanish.

      I leave you waiting for your reply soon.

      Your biggest fan.
