Garth Nix (b. 1963) is an Australian science fiction writer writing for teens. Winner of the Australian Science Fiction Aurealis Prize. Biography Garth Nix was born on January 1, 1963 in Melbourne, Australia. He grew up in Canberra, the state capital of Australia. After working for a bit for the Australian government, Garth Nix went on a long tour of Europe and returned home in 1983 to study literary skills at the University of Canberra. During the same period, he served four years as a part-time soldier ("Sunday Warrior") in the Australian Army reserves. After completing his bachelor`s degree in 1986, he worked briefly in a bookstore before moving to Sydney and bogged down in the publishing industry, gradually degrading from a sales manager first to a publicist, and by 1991 to a senior editor at a large international publishing house. Leaving it all in 1993 for a trip to Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia, Garth Nix returned to Sydney in 1994 and became a PR consultant. In 1996, he founded his own company with two partners, Gotley Nix Evans Pty Ltd. He simply had no other choice, since the places of lumberjacks, geologists, divers and canteen workers were already occupied by other writers. In January 1998, Garth Nix retired from Gotley Nix Evans and only worked as an artist until May 1999.
