Sally Hobart Alexander is an American writer of children's literature. She is best known for her books about her experiences as a blind person.

Born in 1943 in Owensboro, Kentucky, she was educated at Bucknell University. After her undergraduate degree, Alexander taught third-grade students in Southern California, when a rare disease caused her to lose her eyesight. She told Contemporary Authors, "I was unhappy to leave that last year [of my teaching], when my visual difficulties began. I entered an excellent training program in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for newly blinded adults. For a year afterward, I taught at the Greater Pittsburgh Guild for the Blind. Then I entered graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh and obtained a master's degree in social work. For three years I was a child therapist at St. Francis Hospital." She embarked on a writing career in children's fiction with the publication of her first book, Mom Can't See Me, in which Alexander depicts a loving family that has learned to cope with having a blind parent.

Alexander teaches literature and writing in the Chatham University Master of Fine Arts Program in Children’s and Adolescent Writing.
