Scott Reintgen grew up in North Carolina, and took full advantage of the fact that he lived on the same street as fourteen of his cousins. It could be a little crowded, but he threw a few elbows and carved out a space for himself as the family storyteller. He enjoyed the role so much that he decided to spend most of college and graduate school investing in the world of literature. This led to a career teaching English and Creative Writing in the great state of North Carolina, where he currently lives with his wife and family. To his great delight, the demand for stories and storytellers is alive and well. As such, he can often be found at local coffee shops laboring over stories that he hopes his family, and fans, will love.

This book started with the idea of teens from all around the world putting on a black mask, taking fifty steps outside their houses, and appearing in a school in space. That idea... didn't make sense! But the masks stuck, so did the global competition. I sat down and wrote the first scene that's currently in the book (the one scene that never changed in any editorial process). At the time, I was teaching, too. So Emmett was written for my students who wanted to read a really entertaining book AND see characters that looked and talked like them going into space. Thanks for the question!(less)

“You can’t expect to always feel like yourself. Just don’t lose who you are. Are you a bad person? Of course not. Does that mean you’ll always do the right thing? Of course not. No one’s perfect.”
Scott Reintgen, Nyxia

“I don’t have to be perfect. I just have to be better than the other guy.”
Scott Reintgen, Nyxia

“You will be glad that you are not like them. You'll be glad that you showed mercy to those who did not deserve it. Watching you gives me hope. If we are to send representatives down to a new world, they should not be people without mercy. Babel chose you because you're poor. They thought you would be easy to manipulate. Twice you've proven them wrong. Twice you've set the sword aside when they've asked you to swing it. When you look back, it won't be mercy that you regret.”
Scott Reintgen, Nyxia
