Who is George RR Martin’s wife, Parris McBride?
Parris McBride was born in Portland, Oregon, USA, but has kept her date of birth hidden – her zodiac sign is said to be Aries and she is an American national. She is a philanthropist and a bloggerbut perhaps best known as the wife of George RR Martin, a famous American novelist and short story writer.
Early life and education
Parris was raised as an only child in Portland by her father, who owned a small grocery store, and her mother, who was a housewife.
Parris was very active growing up, as she spent most of her time outside exercising and playing with her friends, and attended a local high school where she was physically active and played every sport she was allowed to do. She did not enroll in any university after her entrance exam, but started working, and since she has a hippie soul, she left home at the age of 21 to roam the US. She returned a few years later and started working at the lesbian restaurant “Old Wives’ Tales”, but was fired for playing inappropriate music.
Parris’ career and philanthropy
She then started working at the Sambo restaurant before deciding to quit working as a waitress for good and become a journalist who would run her own live diary, telling about the details of her daily life. She quickly became a philanthropist, and even before her marriage, Parris asked her guests and fans not to give her presents, but rather to donate money to charities aimed at helping animals. She is a huge animal lover and a supporter of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, which aims to help wolf dogs. Parris has helped and collaborated with several other charitable organizations, such as Pearl Foundation and Meow Wolf.
Love life and marriage with George RR Martin
George and Parris met in Nashville in 1975 when he was dating Gale Burnick, which prevented him from dating Parris, although he was attracted to her. Parris was attracted to George’s friend Joe Haldeman, and George married Gale in 1976but they divorced in 1979, and two years later he got in touch with Parris.
George lived in Santa Fe in New Mexico while Parris lived in Portland, and they both tried to convince the other to move – George convinced her to come visit him in Santa Fe, she fell in love with his house and the city and stayed there with him.
Not wanting children right away, they adopted a kitten they named Mulligan, but after more than 30 years together, they married on February 15, 2011. At some point, George and Parris apparently agreed not to have children. .
Other interests and hobbies
Parris is interested in many things including travelling, and as a hippie she has been all over the US before deciding to settle down, but later she visited many European and Asian countries with George. She has helped countless strays by opening the doors of her house for them, feeding them and paying for their vaccinations, etc. Although she loves all animals, two of her favorites are dogs and horses.

Who is George R. R. Martin?
George Raymond Martin was born in Bayonne, New Jersey, USA, on September 20, 1948 – his zodiac sign is Virgo and he is an American national. He is perhaps best known for his series of novels “A Song of Ice and Fire”, on which the popular fantasy series “Game of Thrones” is based.
George was raised in Bayonne alongside his sisters Darleen and Janet by their mother Margaret Brady Martin and their father Raymond Collins Martin who was a longshoreman. The family grew wealthy, but after losing everything during the Great Depression, they became very poor. Since George wanted to travel but couldn’t afford it, he decided to read books because he had heard somewhere that reading books can be the same as travelling.
He started writing and selling countless monster stories to his neighbors for a penny, and was great at creating “endless stories” that would go on and on and would never end. He attended Mary Jane Donohoe School before transferring to Marist High School where he began reading comic books and became a huge fan of Marvel Comics. He then attended Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism in 1970, while earning his Master of Science degree in 1971. of the Vietnam War, but objected and volunteered for two years with AmeriCorps VISTA.
George went on to teach English at Clarke University before deciding to work as a full-time writer in 1977 – the cause of which was the death of his best friend, which made him think about what he really wanted to do in life. He is known to be very accessible to his fans and is a frequent contributor to his “Not a Blog” blog, while appearing at every comic book and sci-fi convention in the US.
George has only been criticized for one thing – for taking too long between books in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, as six years elapsed between his fourth and fifth books, but he has explained that he is not only targeting on a single book, but always works on multiple volumes.
