Shane Dix

Shane Dix (born 1960 in Wales[1]) is an Australian science fiction author best known for his collaborative work with Sean Williams in the Star Wars: New Jedi Order series.[2]

In addition to his novels with Sean Williams, Dix has had short stories published in various magazines and anthologies, including Aurealis: Australian Fantasy & Science Fiction, Eidolon: The Journal of Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy, Borderlands, Twenty3 : A Miscellany (1998), and Alien Shores: An Anthology of Australian Science Fiction (1994).[3]

While primarily known for his science-fiction work, since 2007 Dix has been branching out into other genres and fields of writing with a number of original novels. Four of these manuscripts are now complete, and he is currently looking for an agent to represent them.

His daughter Katelin Dix is also a writer, with promising work in both teenage and fantasy fiction.
