About the Author:
The Divergent series was Veronica Roth’s debut novel and was published in 2011, a little over a year after Roth graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the Creative Writing program at Northwestern University. Roth Wrote the first novel in the best-selling series, Divergent, during her senior year winter break and sold movie rights to the novel before she had graduated. The novel peaked at number two on The New York Times Best Seller List for Children’s Chapter Books and has been translated into over 20 languages.
Veronica Roth has said that the Divergent series was inspired by her own experiences in high school and college as well as drawing inspiration from other popular young adult dystopian books. Over the course of the novels, Roth explores many prominent themes including adult authority, oppression and social inequality against the backdrop of dystopian action and an underlying romantic subplot.
Veronica Roth is a self-proclaimed feminist and included many strong female characters in her series. She has said that she wanted to create a world where women are equal to men, not just in strength but also in intelligence and emotion. As a result, her hopes are that her books inspire girls to be headstrong and to think for themselves much like the female lead in her popular dystopian series.
