About the Author

Molly Booth is the author of Saving Hamlet and Nothing Happened and a total Shakespeare nerd. In high school, she was a stage manager for three different community theatres, which almost killed her. She graduated from Marlboro College and went on to study more Shakespeare (twist!) at University of Massachusetts Boston. Molly is a freelance writer and editor and has been published on,,, and various other websites. She cohosts a Bard-centric podcast, Party Bard, and directs a lovely, hilarious, and fierce group of homeschooled teen Shakespearean actors. Molly lives in Massachusetts, where she spends a lot of time with family and friends, and the rest attending to her queenly cat and loaf-of-bread-shaped dog. You can visit her online (please do!) at


"I love, love, love Saving Hamlet. I love its characters-smart, sassy, irreverent-and its gender-bending both in the 21st and 17th centuries. I love its intelligent take on high school theater geeks. And I know just which granddaughter is getting a copy of this book."--Jane Yolen, author of The Devil's Arithmetic, Sword of the Rightful King, Owl Moon
"Emma is an easy-to-root-for heroine whose struggles will resonate with teens, drama geeks or otherwise. . . . A fun, imaginative debut."--Booklist
* "This entertaining and original novel deals not just with growing up, but with a fresh and different interpretation of 'to be or not to be.'"--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Fans of the Bard will relish this evocative and witty time-travel tale. . . . As enlightening as it is enjoyable, this whimsical novel deserves applause of its own."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Molly Booth's debut has twists, turns, and humor that would make the Bard proud."--Elizabeth Eulberg, author of Better Off Friends
"Saving Hamlet is an intelligent, witty, kaleidoscopic love letter to friendships, relationships, the imagination, and William Shakespeare. If you are even remotely interested in any of the above, then you will relish every page of Molly Booth's time-traveling, theatrical adventure."--Michelle Terry, actress/writer
