VJ Books Presents Author George R. R. Martin!

George R.R. Martin George R. R. Martin was born in Bayonne, New Jersey in 1948. He devoured books as a child and began writing very early on, selling his tales to neighborhood children for pennies. Later, he got into comic books and began writing for amateur fan magazines. Martin studied Journalism at Northwestern University. He graduated summa cum laude and continued on to complete his masters there. His first professionally published story was sold at age 21 to Galaxy magazine.

Martin did two years of alternative service at the Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation as a conscientious objector, while also directing chess tournaments. Later he began teaching journalism part-time at Clarke College in Iowa. He spent a year as writer-in-residence at Clarke before moving to Santa Fe and turning to writing full time in 1979. He was written an abundance of short stories, novelettes, and full-length novels. He is best known for his best-selling epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, later adapted into the HBO series A Game of Thrones. You can find our selection of George R.R. Martin signed books below the biography.

A Game of Thrones was hardly Martin's first experience with Hollywood, however. He worked as a story editor for Twilight Zone at CBS in 1986, and later became a producer, co-supervising producer, and executive producer, as well as writing numerous screenplays, including several episodes of Game of Thrones. He has also had cameo roles in Sharknado 3, Z Nation, and the original Game of Thrones pilot episode.

Martin was the South-Central Regional Director of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America from 1977-1979, and still remains a member. He also served as the Vice President of the Writers' Guild of America, West from 1996-1998.

Martin currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife, Parris.
