Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy met while earning MFAs in Writing for Children & Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts. In 2015 they co-founded Rainbow Boxes, which crowdsourced enough money to send inclusive fiction to shelters and community libraries in every US state. Every spring they host the only LGBTQIA #ownvoices YA & children's writers retreat in the US. They live in Vermont with their young son, Maverick. They are the authors of Once and Future.
Praise for Once and Future: 'All hail this worthier-than-ever, fresh and affirming reincarnation of the legendary king and her round table of knights, which dazzles with heroic flair, humour and suspense.' * <i>Kirkus</i> (starred review) * 'A marvelous mythology remix for teens who enjoy action-packed speculative fiction and genderqueer romance.' * <i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review) * Praise for Once and Future: 'When I read Once and Future, a bold unexpected re-telling of King Arthur as an immigrant teenage girl, I knew it had all the same thrilling elements that would make the legend...a modern favourite once again.' James Patterson 'The inclusive, gender-bent King Arthur retelling that your bookshelf has been missing... An adventure of epic scale.' B & N Teen Blog
