Hostile Questions: Ally Carter
Posted by: Daniel Kraus
Beware Ally Carter. She’s got sticky fingers, if you know what I mean. You might be, say, conducting a perfectly innocent interview in which you are throwing extremely aggressive questions in her general direction and suddenly–hey, didn’t I have a priceless Rembrandt on my office wall? Well, what did I expect from the bestselling author of the spy-themed Gallagher Girls series and Heist Society? That’s all right. Hostile Questions is happy to stroke our hairless cat and wait for the sequel interview…
Just who do you think you are?
Well, I’m the author of the Gallagher Girls series and Heist Society. In other words, I think like spies and thieves for a living.
I live in an undisclosed location befitting someone of my overall covertness.
What’s the big idea?
My biggest idea came one night when I was watching an episode of Alias. I thought I was seeing a flashback of when the main characters were at spy school. I was wrong. But from that point forward I couldn’t stop thinking HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO GO TO SPY SCHOOL!?!?
What is your problem, man?
There are way more things I want to write than there are hours in the day to write them.
Haven’t you done enough?
No! I will never be finished. As long as there are things to steal and secrets to snoop I will live indefinitely.
