Molly Booth is the author of Shakespeare-inspired Young Adult novels SAVING HAMLET (out now!) and NOTHING HAPPENED (spring 2018), both published by Disney Hyperion. Her books use Shakespeare to tell stories that she hopes will empower young people. In high school, she was a stage manager for three different community theatres, which almost killed her. She graduated from Marlboro College and went onto study more Shakespeare (twist!) at University of Massachusetts Boston. Molly is a freelance writer and editor and has been published on TheMarySue.com, McSweeneys.net, HelloGiggles.com, and various other websites. She co-hosts a Bardcentric podcast, Party Bard, and directs a lovely, hilarious, and fierce group of homeschooling teen Shakespearean actors. She also speaks and teaches workshops at schools, colleges, bookstores, book fairs, camps, and libraries. Molly lives in Massachusetts, where she spends a lot of time with family and friends, and the rest attending to her queen cat and loaf-of-bread-shaped dog.
