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)

Thanks so much for your question. Sorry it took so long for me to answer. I'm thrilled that you-- and your peers-- loved the book. I always think that's a challenge. I'm cough 30 cough now and the older many of us authors get, the more difficult it can become to actually write a teenage voice authentically. I was really helped by the fact that I was teaching at the time that I wrote Nyxia. So aside from my wife's voice, the number one thing I was hearing every day were the opinions and thoughts and hilarious and awkward voices of my teenage students. So with that fresh and on my mind, turning around in the afternoon and writing Emmett's story was actually pretty easy for me. Thanks again for the question!(less)

Scott Reintgen, Nyxia

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