James Dashner was born and raised in Georgia, but now lives in the Rocky Mountains with his family. He has four kids, which some might think is too many but he thinks it is just right. Once upon a time, James studied accounting and worked in the field of finance, but has been writing full time for several years. (He doesn’t miss numbers. At all.) James Dashner is the author of the New York Times bestselling The Maze Runner series, The Thirteenth Reality series, and Infinity Ring: Book 1: A Mutiny in Time. His brand new series, The Mortality Doctrine, launches with the publication of The Eye of Minds this October. He resides in Utah with his family.
