About Garth Nix

In 1963, Garth Nix was born in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band playing ‘Hail the Conquering Hero Comes’ or maybe ‘Roll Out the Barrel’. He left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital), where he lived until he was nineteen, before driving around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a boot full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter.

Despite a wheel literally falling off the Austin, Garth returned to Australia and studied at the University of Canberra. As a graduate, he worked in a bookshop, then as a book publicist, a publisher’s sales representative, and an editor. His journey also included four years of service in the Australian Army Reserve with an Assault Pioneer platoon. In 1994, Garth worked as a public relations and marketing consultant, before becoming a full-time writer in 1998. In 1999, he joined Curtis Brown Australia as a part-time literary agent. Despite his belief that full-time writing explains many authors’ strange behavior, Garth returned to dedicated writer in January 2002.

Currently, he lives in Sydney with his wife, two sons, and a lot of books.

I am not afraid, he said to himself.
“I love you,” he whispered. “I hope you don’t mind.”
― Garth Nix, Sabriel
