It takes two? It’s twice as nice? Well in this case it does and it is! We’ve rounded up some novels by excellent author duos. From swapping chapters back and forth to editing your best writer friend’s work, these authors share in every single aspect of writing a novel. Here are six books by author duos!
Tiny Imperfections by Alli Frank and Asha Youmans
What would happen if the movie The Wedding Date met Class Mom? Well, you’d have Tiny Imperfections, the debut by Alli Frank and Asha Youmans coming May 2020. The story centers around single mom Josie who works at a private school and does her best to keep her 17-year-old daughter on track. Josie’s best friend is trying to convince her to get back out there and date, but she’s too focused on work. When life-changing surprises come about, it’s time to consider what truly matters. Authors Allie and Asha have both worked in education and have impressive bios. While one of them is a “fabulous home cook,” the other knows where she can go when she needs good food!
What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
Bestselling YA authors Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) and Adam Silvera (They Both Die at the End) team up to bring readers a heartfelt story about two different boys in What If It’s Us who meet randomly at the post office. What does the universe have in store for Arthur and Ben and does it want them together, or apart?
How to Save a Life by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke
Here’s a duo that has been together for a long while. Since 1987 to be exact. BFFs Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke have survived high school together; survived college together, and have written seven books together! Their latest, How to Save a Life is the story about Dom and his ex-fiancée and what happens when a desperate wish is granted yet fate gets in the way of his happy-ever-after.
You are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
I have been a Sarah Pekkanen fan ever since her debut came out in 2010. That book was The Opposite of Me, which happened to be edited by Greer Hendricks. After working together as author and editor for seven books, Greer and Sarah teamed up to write together. Their first collaboration, The Wife Between Us, was an instant NYT bestseller, which was followed up by An Anonymous Girl, also landing on the list. The duo’s third book, You Are Not Alone comes out in March and is another psychological suspense we can’t wait to read!
The Woman Inside by E.G. Scott
The minds behind The Woman Inside, and friends for more than 20 years, Elizabeth Keenan and Greg Wands have been writing separately since they were children. Their domestic thriller is told from the perspective of both husband and wife, who are either the most perfect couple, or the most dangerous match ever made. Twisty and deceitful, this is a story of a marriage with secrets and lies that may destroy everything.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Authors Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings have written as Christina Lauren for a long time – long enough to have 14 New York Times bestselling novels! In The Unhoneymooners, the whole wedding party comes down with food poisoning. Well, everyone but the bride’s sister and her nemesis, the best man. In order for someone to enjoy the honeymoon that had been planned, Olive and Ethan reluctantly agree to take the trip instead of the newlyweds. What could possibly go wrong when two people who can’t stand each other head to Maui pretending to be the bride and groom?
