Author Birthdays: Garth Nix

Today is the birthday of Australian fantasy writer Garth Nix, who just happens to be one of my favorite authors.

Nix has written many books for children and teens, including The Seventh Tower Series, The Keys to the Kingdom, The Abhorsen Trilogy, and a great collection of short stories, called One Beastly Beast: (two Aliens, Three Inventors, Four Fantastic Tales).

I highly recommend checking out his website; it includes writing advice, news, some of his favorite books, as well as an interactive story, kind of like a Choose Your Own Adventure.

Also, we might be expecting an addition to the Abhorsen Trilogy sometime this year.
