Ray Bradbury was an American writer who was known as the king of mystery. He had written hundreds of books about horror and science fiction. But his reason for fame was Martian Chronicles and the Fahrenheit 451 : A Novel. 

The academic career of Bradbury was struggling. He had to face financial problems during his college. So, he started to sell newspapers to bear the expenses of his studies. His endless efforts bore fruit, and the world knows him today as the most amateur writer and role model for youth. 

Due to financial conditions, he had to support his family. So, the author had left the college and was trying to support his family to make their livings possible. But the passion of writing never died for him. He began to sit in the library and read books for hours. This habit made him able to write the first story.
