About the Author

Sara Shepard

The last few years have been pretty amazing for author Sara Shepard. First, her debut book series, Pretty Little Liars, became a bestseller. Then it inspired a hit TV show. Now ABC Family is producing a pilot based on her sophomore effort, The Lying Game. The pretty little truth is: success hasn't changed her one bit. Check out our Q&A with Sara and flip through the personal photos she shared with us to learn more about the woman behind the Liars.
