Ally Condie used to work at a shave-ice shack as a teenager. She ate so many tigers’ blood shaved-ices that it now runs through her veins. She likes to hike and isn’t afraid of falling, which is good because she’s not the most coordinated person on the planet. She’s really good at seeing famous people at the New York City airport. So far, her best ones are Rihanna and Benedict Cumberbatch. One time she went to the Hearst Castle with Brendan Reichs and Soman Chainani and they saw a ghost. It was so spooky they still don’t like to talk about it. Ally lives outside of Salt Lake City with her husband and four children.
