This episode I chat to Australian Fantasy novelist Garth Nix.

His career spans over two decades and he’s sold more than 5 million books around the world. We chat about how he got started, his love of libraries and Dungeons & Dragons, Tolkien, his time working in publishing, his breakout novel Sabriel and how he wrote it, his philosophy on planning versus discovering as you write, his writing routine, advice on what an amazing first page looks like, and more.

Why not try SABRIEL by Garth Nix.


Or perhaps THE FALL.

Each the beginning of great Fantasy series!

And oh hey, you could also read my novel, THE HONOURS.

Why not help me out and pre-order the sequel, THE ICE HOUSE? Out May 2019. #roadto1500!

Finally you can drop the show a few bucks via my Ko-fi page:
