Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare is the pseudonym of the bestselling [cite web |url=http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/22/books/bestseller/0422bestchildren.html |title=Best Sellers : Children's Books |date=2007-04-22 |publisher=New York Times] author of the young adult trilogy "The Mortal Instruments". Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Tehran. She lived in France, England and Switzerland before she was ten years old. From her high school years on, she lived in Los Angeles and New York where she worked at various entertainment magazines and tabloids. She started working on her novel "City of Bones" in 2007, inspired by the urban landscape of Manhattan.

Prior to the publishing of "City of Bones", Clare was known for writing fan fiction under the similar pseudonym Cassandra Claire. Her main works were "The Draco Trilogy" (Harry Potter) and "The Very Secret Diaries" (The Lord of the Rings). Claire was considered a Big Name Fancite web |url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml;?xml=/arts/2006/04/02/bolists.xml |title= Into the lists |accessdate=2008-01-10 |date=2006-04-02 |publisher=The Telegraph] and was covered in several newspaper articles about fan fiction: "The Draco Trilogy" was described by The Times as a "gem of such superlative quality that it enhances one's appreciation of the [Harry Potter series] " [cite web |url=http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/books/article782039.ece |title=What the Doctor did next |accessdate=2008-01-10 |date=2005-12-24 |publisher=The Times] and The Daily Telegraph called "The Very Secret Diaries" a "cult classic". Nevertheless, Claire's time as a fan fiction writer was soured by accusations of overwhelming proof that she had plagiarised parts of "The Draco Trilogy".

Clare took part of her pseudonym from "The Beautifull Cassandra", on which she had based an epic novel during high school.
