A well-known writer, how rich is George R. R. Martin? According to sources, George R. R. Martin’s net worth is estimated to be $50 million, the majority of which he has accumulated due to the popularity of his novels.

George R. R. Martin was born in 1948, in New Jersey, United States. Martin studied at the Mary Jane Donohoe School, and later transferred to Marist High School. Since his childhood, Martin has been interested in writing, and expressed particular interest in comic-books. Consequently, Martin wrote a story entitled “Powerman vs. The Blue Barrier”, which brought him an Alley Award, and inspired him to continue writing. Upon his graduation from high school, he enrolled in the Northwestern University, where he received a degree in Journalism. With George Guthridge’s help, Martin landed the job of a journalism instructor at Clarke University, yet even though he was content with his job, Martin decided to fully dedicate himself to writing. When he was 21 years old, he started writing short stories, which he would later sell to various magazines and newspapers. One of Martin’s first stories sold to a magazine was “The Hero”, which was published in 1971. Two years later, he released “With Morning Comes Mistfall”, which earned him a nomination for a Nebula Award and Hugo Award. A defining moment in Martin’s career came in 1983, after the release of “The Armageddon Rag”, which failed to attract public attention. As a result of this, Martin turned to television and started working as an executive story consultant for the “Twilight Zone” series. However, he did not abandon his literary career, and in 1991 came out with “A Game of Thrones”.

In regards to his personal life, Martin was briefly involved with Lisa Tuttle. He then married Gale Burnick, but they divorced four years later in 1979. Martin is now married to Parris McBride.
