AUTHOR

George R. R. Martin

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.

The Editorial Alvi Books dedicated him, as a tribute and recognition, this space in Amazon in 2015.

Pasó diez años en Hollywood como escritor y productor, trabajando en The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, y varios largometrajes y series de televisión que nunca se emitieron. A mediados de los 90, regresó a la prosa, su primer amor, y comenzó a trabajar en su serie de fantasía épica, Una canción de hielo y fuego. Ha estado en los Siete Reinos desde entonces. Cada vez que puede viajar, regresa a Santa Fe, Nuevo México, donde vive con el encantador Parris, y dos gatos llamados Augusto y Calígula, que piensan que controlan el lugar.
