Biography

Neil Gaiman started his career as a journalist in the early 1980s. Soon he began writing comics, including the award-winning and enormously influential Sandman series, and met Terry Pratchett with whom he wrote the 1990 novel, Good Omens.

Since then he has become the #1 New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen beloved books for adults and children, including the novels Neverwhere, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Anansi Boys, and four collections of short stories and non-fiction.

For younger readers he has published The Graveyard Book, the only novel ever to win both the Newbery (US) and the Carnegie (UK) Medals for the most prestigious contribution to children’s literature, and Coraline, adapted into a film which was an Academy Award Nominee and winner of the BAFTA for Best Animated Film.

Other awards include Hugos, Nebulas, Eisners and most recently he was one of three people on the shortlist for the Alternative Nobel Prize for Literature (he didn’t get it). He has also won several Audie Awards for Best Narration By the Author, most recently for his international bestseller, Norse Mythology.

He has written award-winning scripts for Doctor Who and wrote the English language version of Princess Mononoke. He has appeared as himself in cartoon form on Arthur and The Simpsons, in real life on The Big Bang Theory, and as the voice of God in Lucifer (itself a spin-off from Gaiman’s Sandman work).

In 2017 Neil Gaiman became a Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee agency. Originally from England, he lives in the US where he is a Professor in the Arts at Bard College.
