Andy Weir was born and raised in California on June 16, 1972. He is the author of the bestselling, award winning book The Martian. Weir states, I started writing fiction and just putting it up on my website. The Martian was posted in serial format for free for people to read. Its popularity prompted Weir to self-publish a Kindle version on Amazon in 2012. The Martian rocketed to the top of Amazon's online bestseller charts soon after its release. Random House publishers soon heard of The Martian's success, spurring a book deal. This title won the Adult Debut Prize in the Indie Choice Book Awards 2015, the same year that it became listed on the New York Times bestseller list. He was also awarded The John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2016. He is the author of Artemis. It was published in November 2017 and has become a New York Times bestseller. (Bowker Author Biography)
