What inspired you to write your extraordinarily popular Renegades series?

I’ve loved superhero stories since I was a kid, and the concept behind Renegades came to me in a bit of a lightning bolt moment back in 2013. I was on my way to do a book signing when we drove past a commercial construction site, and from the corner of my eye I thought the sign on the site said “Coming Soon to this Location: Hero School.” On closer inspection, the sign said something completely different, but I was already imagining a school for superheroes, and also their rivals… a school for supervillains! And in the span of a few minutes, I started to dream up these characters – a hero and a villain – and what would happen if the two of them met as civilians and started to fall in love, not realizing that their alter egos were actually archenemies! I fell in love with the idea immediately.

What’s your travel must-have while on book tour?

My Nook, of course! Though I prefer bound books when I’m at home, they’re too heavy and take up too much space in the luggage, but I can’t imagine traveling without good reading material, so ebooks it is! One of my favorite pre-tour rituals is choosing and downloading what books I’ll be reading while I’m on tour.


Archenemies by Marissa Meyer

“In a vividly dark and fully imagined universe where special abilities are feared unless they can be strictly controlled and labeled, Meyer celebrates and subverts popular superhero tropes while mining the gray area between malevolence and virtue. Third-person narration builds suspense as it shifts between Nova and Adrian, a Renegade with his own secrets; the worldbuilding details and many combat sequences will captivate devotees of superhero comics. Beyond the capes and masks is a strikingly grounded story of star-crossed would-be lovers, deception, and the recognition that most of humanity exists between the extremes of good and evil.” – Publishers Weekly
