Biography

Date of birth: 27 July 1973

Judith Rumelt, better known by her pen name Cassandra Clare, is an American author of young adult fiction, most known for her bestselling series The Mortal Instruments . Clare was born in Tehran, Iran. As a child, Clare travelled frequently, spending time in Switzerland, England and France. She returned to Los Angeles for high school and from then on split her time between California and New York, where she worked at various entertainment magazines and tabloids.

While living in Los Angeles, Clare began writing fan fiction using the name Cassandra Claire. However, she deleted her fan fiction from the Internet shortly before her first novel, The City of Bones , was published under the name Cassandra Clare.

In 2004, Clare began working on her first published novel, City of Bones, inspired by the urban landscape of Manhattan. City of Bones was released in 2007. Clare went on to add more books to her series, including City of Ashes , City of Glass , City of Fallen Angels and City of Lost Souls . Clare has yet to release City of Heavenly Fire, the next installment to the Mortal Instruments series.

In 2009, Clare also announced a series of prequels called The Infernal Devices, set in the same universe as The Mortal Instruments, but in the Victorian era. The series was planned to consist of three books, Clockwork Angel (published August 31 2010), Clockwork Prince (published December 6, 2011) and Clockwork Princess (published March 19, 2013.)

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was made into a film in 2013 by Unique Features and Constantin Film. First-time writer Jessica Postigo wrote the screenplay, based on the first book in the series. Lily Collins starred as the heroine of the books, Clary Fray, and Jamie Campbell Bower starred as Jace Wayland.

Cassandra Clare's most recent book is City of Heavenly Fire
