In her twenties, Amy Boesky lived a double life.

By day, she was a Harvard graduate studying English at Oxford. By night, she was a ghostwriter for the popular teen book series Sweet Valley High. Over the course of six years, Boesky wrote more than 50 books for the series under the pseudonym Kate William.
