Cassandra Clare is the popular Young Adult author of The Mortal Instruments series that includes City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass, books that she describes as Urban Fantasy. She has also written series known as The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours and The Bane Chronicles. She has also written The Shadowhunter’s Codex and, with Holly Black, she has co-authored The Magisterium series.

Although she is an American, Clare was born in Iran and has traveled about the world, learning about different cultures as part of her own time growing up. Books and stories, both reading them and writing them, gave her comfort and solace. According to her website http://www.cassandraclare.com/about/, she started writing City of Bones in 2004 and published it two years later. She has been writing professionally ever since.

Cassie hates working at home alone because she always gets distracted by reality TV shows and the antics of her two cats,” the website explains. “She usually sets out to write in local coffee shops and restaurants. She likes to work in the company of her friends, who see that she sticks to her deadlines.”
