James Dashner | About James DashnerHe attended Brigham Young University where he studied accounting but also decided to try his hand at writing, having been an avid reader since childhood. After several attempts, Dashner eventually created the character of Jimmy Fincher. Dashner would expand his story into an outline and eventually produce four books in a series, collectively known as The Jimmy Fincher Saga. After repeated rejections from publishers, Dashner's manuscript was well received by Cedar Fort and his writing career began to take form. After completion of the four books in the Fincher series, Dashner began another planned trilogy: The Maze Runner. Like the previous saga, this series would again focus on a young boy in a perilous situation. Reviews of The Maze Runner were positive, with many comparing the series to the wildly popular The Hunger Games series.
James and his siblings got a long but since there were so many of them, their house would be like a crazy jungle. Dashner was raised as a Mormon family. He grew up under the attentive watch of two parents. He states that his parents were strict but were very supportive of his career and they encouraged him to pursue his dreams. James and his family moved down to South Jordan City, Utah. Dashner is the father of four children.
