Meet Emily Wibberly & Austin Siegemund-Broka!

Raised by a school librarian, Austin's always had a passion for books, especially books for young people. He met and fell in love with Emily in high school and went to Harvard University for undergrad. He studied English (focusing on Shakespeare) and graduated magna cum laude in 2014. Recently, Austin worked as a journalist for The Hollywood Reporter and was a UCLA law student; however there's nothing he he loves like writing with Emily. Emily, whose parents are screenwriters, has loved writing and story-telling since an age she hardly remembers. Since meeting Austin (she says it was middle school--accounts vary), Emily attended Princeton University for undergrad, studied psychology, and graduated magna cum laude in 2014. While at Princeton, she wrote the first novel in her self-published YA fantasy trilogy, The Last Oracle, which was featured in USA Today and was a finalist for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

Meet Always Never Yours!

A contemporary Shakespeare-inspired YA from a fantastic new author couple! What's it like to play the understudy in your own love story?

Megan Harper is the girl before . . . just like Rosaline from Romeo and Juliet. Every one of Megan's relationships has ended the same way--her ex replaces her with someone perfect. But instead of crying over every breakup, Megan spends her time on her two passions: pursuing her next fling and directing theater. She hates the spotlight, and she's hoping to fulfill her college program's acting requirement in the smallest role possible. But then Megan's theater teacher casts her to play none other than Juliet in her school's production of Romeo and Juliet--and she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright. In exchange for Megan's help writing a play, Owen agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a hot hipster stagehand. Between rehearsing and contending with her dad's plans to move with Megan's pregnant stepmom to New York, Megan begins to realize Owen-- thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes--might be the Romeo she never expected. Better yet, with him, she might finally be a Juliet.
