Author of the Week - James Dashner

James Dashner was born in 1973 in Georgia. He attended Brigham Young University. Dashner is most well-known for his children's fantasy series including the The 13th Reality and the Jimmy Fincher Saga. Dashner's series. Dashner describes his career as stepping stones. His first book in the Jimmy Fincher Saga was very small with only a little exposure in a very small regional area. Then 13th Reality came out and it was a little bigger, and that led to him getting an agent which then led him to Random House. His newest book is The Maze Runner, set to be a trilogy, is a young adult action packed sci-fi, that I have reviewed previously and loved. Dashner currently lives and writes in the Rocky Mountains in Utah with his wife and four children. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a blog run by Dashner. I love blogs.
