George R R Martin
Born 1948 in New Jersey. He is a trained journalist and worked as a teacher, but began to write stories with elements of science fiction that he sold to friends and later fanzines. His first sci-fi novel sold him a 21-year-old Galazy Magazine.
He moved to television and, among other things, was the author and producer of scenarios for the 80th series "Beauty and Beast". With the disappointment that his own ideas for new TV shows have not become reality, he wrote the first book, The Ice and Fire Story. "The Iron Throne Battle", published in 1991.
HBO bought the rights to the series and sent the first episode of "Thrones" in April 2011. The book "The Dragon's Dragon's Book" was released in July of the same year. The end-of-season series will be broadcast the following year, but when the two final parts of the final package are completed, it's still unclear.
