New York Times bestselling co-authors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff met thanks to international taxation law, and soon struck up a writing partnership based on a shared love of blowing things up and breaking hearts. Their first collaboration resulted in the international bestseller Illuminae. Separately, Amie is also the co-author of the bestselling Starbound trilogy, while Jay is the author of the award-winning Lotus War trilogy and the Nevernight Chronicle. They live with their respective spouses in Melbourne, Australia, and are fuelled almost exclusively by caffeine and readers' tears.
