American author, Veronica Roth, is best known for her trilogy of Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant. She wrote the first of the trilogy, Divergent, when she was still a student at Northwestern University, with the publishing rights sold before she even graduated college. The film rights were sold before the novel was published in April 2011. Roth was off to a quick flying start with her career as a novelist as she finished her final year of creative writing.
Within a few years, the trilogy was sold to Summit Entertainment, where Lions- gate released all three in the Divergent Trilogy, which included the final chapter, Allegiant being divided into two Parts. Then, Author Roth wrote a series of short stories based on the Divergent main character, Tobias Eaton's point of view. There were four short stories titled: The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor. The short stories were published in several forms.
