Victoria Aveyard wuchs im Osten der USA auf, in einer Kleinstadt in Massachusetts. Von dort zog sie an die Westküste, um in Los Angeles an der University of Southern California Drehbuchschreiben zu studieren. Sie hat ein Faible für Geschichte, für Explosionen und für taffe Heldinnen - und schreibt am liebsten Bücher, in denen sie alles drei kombinieren kann.
