Hailing from Bayonne, New Jersey, George R.R. Martin was far from an overnight success. A short-story writer, novelist, and screenwriter, it was nearly a decade after his 1997 release that his A Song of Ice and Fire series made him a household name. He is ruthless in his storytelling and has earned quite a reputation for killing off beloved characters. Once HBO made Game of Thrones was made into a television series, his books began to fly off shelves. Finally making him an author on the New York Times best seller list.
He is respected and revered by readers and viewers alike. The world is holding its breath waiting for the completion of his final book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Even if he never writes another book again, his creation of Westeros and all its characters have guaranteed him a place in American literary history.
