Ray Bradbury was born in Waukegan, Illinois. During his childhood, Bradbury would have these frightening dreams, which later he transformed into books. He became a full-time writer in 1943. He often mixes science fiction with social criticism and writes about the ruinous tendency in humans to use technology at the expense of mortality as seen in one of his many books, Fahrenheit 451.

Later in the book Montag thinks to himself that the government probably killed her. The thing I didn't like about this was that they did not go into detail with Clarisse's character and her character was relevant to the story.
