National Book Festival

James Dashner left the world of finance several years ago and says he doesn’t miss numbers at all. He wanted to be a writer from an early age and read every book he could get his hands on. His new book is “Infinity Ring Book 1: A Mutiny in Time” (Scholastic), Dashner thinks writing is the greatest job anyone can have.
