Lauren Oliver was born in 1982 and was primarily raised in Westchester, New York. She is the author of Before I Fall, a New York Times bestselling novel and the Delirium trilogy, which includes Delirium, Pandemonium and Requiem.

Oliver is also known for writing the young reader’s novels, Liesl and Po and The Spindlers. Due to her passion for reading, she originally engaged in creative writing by writing sequels for the characters in the various novels she had read. Both of her parents were literature professors, so they had always encouraged her and her sister to express themselves imaginatively through painting, dressing up, drawing, and creating stories of their own.

Oliver graduated at the University of Chicago in 2004. She majored in literature and philosophy, attending New York University's Master of Fine Arts program for creative writing afterwards. She graduated from the program in 2008 and started work as an editorial assistant at Penguin Books. Eventually, she began to work full-time as an author.
