Well, his name is George R.R. Martin and he's the author of a little fantasy series called A Song of Ice and Fire.

If you're like, "Hmmm 🤔. Still doesn't ring a bell," maybe this will help: The first book of the series is called A Game of Thrones.

With George being extremely famous and whatnot, people probably recognize him wherever he goes — except apparently for one place:

Hilariously, people volunteered some possible answers as to how that might be...

@GRRMspeaking @BitteSchon Maybee if the publisher saw you more often? *Looking away, whisteling*

@GRRMspeaking to their defense, you haven't turned in anything for awhile...

LOL.

@GRRMspeaking Publisher's office? Thought you didn't publish. Are you still a writer?

FYI, fans have been (im)patiently waiting for Martin to write the next book in the series, The Winds of Winter.

Me, every time George RR Martin promises #windsofwinter will be out in just one MORE year. #GameOfThrones

How have there been 5 #Sharknado movies in the past 4 years and I'm still waiting for #windsofwinter? #comeon #asongoficeandfire

Well, just a couple of weeks ago, Martin addressed the progress of The Winds of Winter on his Not A Blog:

I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that's all I care to say. Whether WINDS or the first volume of FIRE AND BLOOD will be the first to hit the bookstores is hard to say at this juncture, but I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018... and who knows, maybe two. A boy can dream...
