Judith Rumelt, Cassandra Clare, was born July 27, 1973 in Teheran, Iran to Richard and Elizabeth Rumelt. Her mother was an author and her father was both an author and professor at business school, which gave them a wealthy lifestyle. Her father also loved to travel which meant Casandra spent most of her life traveling. She lived in many places before the age of ten "including the Himalayas where she was a toddler and lived in her fathers back pack" (Clare). Other places she lived includes: France, England and Switzerland. "Since her family moved around so much she found familiarity in books and went everywhere with a book under her are" (Clare). But she soon found herself attending high-school in Los Angelas.
After College/ Notable works
After college Cassandra found herself working for numerous magazines and tabloids. She "reported on the travels of Brad and Angelina and Britney Spear's wardrobe malfunctions" (Clare). While working for the companies Cassandra began her first novel, City of Bones, in 2003 which was to be published in 2007. This novel was inspired by the urban landscape of Manhattan, her favorite city. Before publishing Casandra quit her job and turned to writing fantasy fiction full time in 2006. Although, her first novel was City of Bones; her first professional writing sale was a short story: The Girls Guide to Defeating the Dark Lord. Her notable works include: The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and The Magisterium Series.
Her inspiration for writing was Jane Austen's short stories.
