Garth Nix grew up in Canberra, Australia. Besides being a full-time writer, he has worked as a sales rep, publicist, editor, marketing communications consultant, literary agent, and part-time soldier. He is the acclaimed author of the internationally bestselling Abhorsen Chronicles: Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen, as well as the story collection Across the Wall and the novels Shade's Children and The Ragwitch.
