Herbert George Wells was born on September 21, 1866, in England. At age 7, he suffered a broken leg. While resting his injury, Wells started reading books. As he grew older, he continued to enjoy reading and school. At 14, young Wells quit school to help his struggling family. Fortunately, he received a scholarship in 1883 and began studying science at a school in London. Soon after, Wells started writing. Some of his works, like The War of the Worlds, combine his love for storytelling and science. Davis Worth Miller and Katherine McLean Brevar are a married couple living and working together in North Carolina. They are both full-time writers. Miller has written several best-selling books including The Tao of Muhammad Ali. He is now working on his memoir and several other novels with his wife.
