:"For the journalist of the same name, see Ann Martin (journalist)."Ann Matthews Martin (born August 12, 1955, in Princeton, New Jersey) is an American author of children's and young adult books, most notably the "The Baby-sitters Club" series.

She graduated from Smith College in 1978 with a double major in psychology and elementary education, later becoming a teacher and then an editor of children's books. Her first book was "Bummer Summer", published in 1983. Ideas from Martin's books came from personal experiences, including her own babysitting as a child.

Martin lives in Hudson Valley, New York. According to the biographical blurb in the back of the Baby-Sitters Club books, she "likes ice cream and "I Love Lucy", and hates to cook."

In 1990, she created the [http://www.scholastic.com/annmartin/foundation.htm Ann M. Martin Foundation] , which provides grants to causes benefiting children, education/literacy programs, and homeless people and animals.
