Molly Booth grew up homeschooled in Massachusetts with her four boisterous siblings. She stage managed for three different community theatres in high school. Her first college was Bunker Hill Community College in Charlestown, Massachusetts; she then went on to study writing, literature, and Elizabethan history at Marlboro College in Vermont. There, she wrote the first drafts of Saving Hamlet, her debut novel, from Disney Hyperion. Her second book, Nothing Happened, will be coming spring 2018. In Saving Hamlet, just as everything starts to go haywire with the drama club’s production of Hamlet, Emma Allen falls through the stage’s trap door and emerges at the Globe Theater’s original production of the play—complete with William Shakespeare! Can Emma save two disastrous productions?
