Join New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter in conversation with Carmel's own Claire Isenthal as they talk about life as writers and their new novels.
Carter, author of the beloved Ya series Gallagher Girls, shares the story behind her first adult novel The Blonde Identity. In this fast-paced, hilarious road trip rom-com, a woman with amnesia discovers she's the identical twin sister of a rogue spy . . . and must team up with a rugged, grumpy operative to stay alive. Carter is the bestselling author of novels that have epitomized action-adventure YA romance for more than a decade. She is also the author of The Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor and The Winterborne Home for Mayhem and Mystery for younger readers. Her first original screenplay, A Castle for Christmas, was recently #1 on Netflix.
Isenthal is a graduate of Carmel High School and Purdue University. Her debut novel, The Rising Order, follows Flynn Zarytsky, a recruiter for a Chicago mega-tech company who catches the eye of a homegrown terrorist organization called REDS. Flynn finds herself becoming a pawn in a dangerous game that presents her with an impossible choice—save her family and friends or save the lives of thousands of innocent people.
