Veronica Roth

Veronica Roth had a relatively quick journey to literary stardom, with her debut novel Divergent putting her on the New York Times best sellers list at the age of 22. Roth attended Minnesota's Carleton College for one year, before she transferred to Northwestern and graduating from the university's prestigious writing program. Her agent Joanna Stampfel-Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary saw the potential in Roth and signed her to a contract, securing a publishing deal with HarperCollins only four days after sending out the Divergent Draft
