Author of the Month: James Dashner
James Dashner is the author of the hugely popular Maze Runner series, the first instalment of which is about to be released in cinemas this month. He has also written a number of other book series, including Infinity Ring, 13th Reality, and his latest book Mortality Doctrine.
James wanted to be an author from a very young age, but first he became an accountant. Luckily, several years ago, he decided to pursue his true passion and now writes full-time, claiming to have "the greatest job ever".
