Garth Nix is an Australian author, beloved for his award-winning young adult fantasy novels Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, and Clariel; the dystopian novel Shades Children; the space opera A Confusion of Princes; and a Regency romance with magic, Newts Emerald. His fantasy novels for children include The Ragwitch; the six books of The Seventh Tower sequence; The Keys to the Kingdom series; and the Troubletwisters series and Spirit Animals: Blood Ties (co-written with Sean Williams).

More than five million copies of his books have been sold around the world, his books have appeared on the bestseller lists of The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, The Guardian and The Australian, and his work has been translated into 40 languages.

Helene Wecker is a local Bay Area author, who grew up in Libertyville, Illinois, a small town north of Chicago, and received her Bachelors in English from Carleton College in Minnesota. After graduating, she worked a number of marketing and communications jobs in Minneapolis and Seattle before deciding to return to her first love, fiction writing. Accordingly, she moved to New York to pursue a Masters in fiction at Columbia University. She now lives near San Francisco with her husband and daughter. Her first novel, the highly acclaimed The Golem and the Jinni, was published in April 2013 by HarperCollins. Its sequel, The Iron Season, will be released in 2018.
