Veronica Roth is a 23 year-old, 6-foot tall, self-proclaimed sci-fi nerd. Her fears include: heights, bugs, flocks of birds, speed, scaling rickety structures, and ordering meat at the deli counter. Despite them, she would choose Dauntless as her faction, because she thinks courage, particularly courage that empowers a person to act for the good of others regardless of the consequences, is important. She also owns a lot of black clothing.
Veronica graduated from Northwestern University’s creative writing program, and while she didn’t skip class to write, she definitely chose writing over homework. She is now a full-time writer living near Chicago. Her first novel, Divergent debuted as number six on the ‘New York Times’ bestseller list. She is currently working on the sequel, Insurgent which is expected to release in May of 2012.
