Sarah J. Maas Biography – Sarah J. Maas Wiki

Sarah J. Maas is an American fantasy author known for her fantasy series Throne of Glass, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Crescent City.

Maas was born in New York City. She grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In 2008, Maas graduated magna cum laude from Hamilton College in Clinton, Oneida County, New York, where she majored in creative writing and minored in religious studies.

She started writing her debut novel, Throne of Glass when she was sixteen years old. After writing several chapters of the novel, then titled Queen of Glass, Maas posted them on, where it was one of the most popular stories on the site. It was later removed from the site when Maas decided to publish the novel.

In 2008, Maas started sending the story to agents before signing with Tamar Rydzinski of The Laura Dial Literary Agency in 2009. Throne of Glass was purchased in March 2010 by Bloomsbury, who later purchased two additional books in the series. While four prequel novellas were set two years before the first novel was also published, these were later condensed into one book, The Assassin’s Blade plus an original novella.

The second book of the series, Crown of Midnight was a New York Times young adult best-seller. The final book in the series, Kingdom of Ash, was released on October 23, 2018; the finished series comprised seven books plus the novella collection.

On May 16, 2018, Maas announced her third fantasy series which is also her first adult fantasy series, Crescent City. The first book, titled House of Earth and Blood, was released by Bloomsbury on March 3, 2020. The sequel, House of Sky and Breath, was released on February 15, 2022, and won the Best Fantasy award for Goodreads Choice Awards in 2022. The third installation of the series, House of Flame and Shadow, was released on January 30th, 2024.

She was ranked the fifth most popular author between 2016 and 2021 on Goodreads.

The A Court of Thorns and Roses series was announced to be adapted into a television series for Hulu in 2021. In an interview with The New York Times, Maas confirmed that she was developing the project with the writers and the showrunner as executive producer.

As of 2022, she has sold over twelve million copies of her books and her work has been translated into 37 languages. In February 2023, the St. Johns (Florida) County School District removed three of her books and quarantined another. An article in The Verge reported that the cover of the UK edition of House of Earth and Blood used an AI-generated image in May 2023.

In an interview with Writers & Artists, Maas told them that movie scores and classical music are her inspiration as a writer. She continued on to say that Sabriel written by Garth Nix and The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley began her love for reading fantasy and writing it. Her character development has been lauded as one of her best qualities for storytelling, with morally grey characters and strong world-building.
