Does anyone know James Dashner for writing other books? Or anything to keep in mind while we read the book, like how he writes from other books or this series if no one posts any spoilers

Leila (leilacarrollann) | 172 comments Sure! I think it's interesting to learn about an author and see if you can make any connections from his real life to his writing. We shall see I suppose : )

Leila (leilacarrollann) | 172 comments Well he was born in 1972. He published Maze Runner in 2009 so he was around 37.
