1963, GARTH NIX was born in Melbourne, Australia to the sounds
of a brass band. Rather than become a scientist (like his
father) or an artist (like his mother), he decided to be a
writer. That meant, among other life experiences, attending
college, working in a bookshop, and entering the publishing
industry. Of course, it's tough to write when you're working
all day, so Garth quit his day job to become a full-time writer.
The winner of many awards and much acclaim, his novels
include Sabriel, Shade's Children,
The Ragwitch, Lirael,
The Seventh Tower series, and Abhorsen.
Garth currently lives very happily near Coogee Beach in
Sydney, Australia, with his wife and child.
