Veronica Roth

This week we're reading Divergent, a book that's been on our radar for quite some time.  It's been cropping up all over the place, so we thought we should read it and tell our faithful readers what it's all about.  So today, I'm talking about it's author, Veronica Roth.

This is Veronica Roth, as she feels she looks in everyday.

Roth went to Northwestern University and majored in creative writing.  She was actually writing Divergent while in school!  She was 22 when Divergent was published, surprisingly young for an author.  She is current 24 years old and her third book (the last in the Divergent series.)  She was married to Nelson Fitch, a photographer, in 2011.

Not a lot is out there right now about Roth, probably because she's such a new author.  Divergent is being made into a movie, we know she has two books out and is writing a third, and also has a collaboration out called Shards & Ashes.
