Nat Amoore is a kid’s writer who is passionate about encouraging kids to read and write and explore their imagination without boundaries. She is all about big ideas, big laughs and big fun.
On a farm on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I joined a family of sheep, cows, a donkey, a crazy goat, some ferrets and a kangaroo called Skippy. They all loved me very much. There was also a big brother called Dane, who didn’t like me even a little bit!
I have been a trapeze artist, a travel agent, a podcast host, a filmmaker, a reality show contestant, worked at a Christmas tree farm and collected pinecones to sell.
I like writing about kids who make mistakes. I made lots of them when I was young and I turned out ok (my Mum might not agree). Mistakes are how you learn and grow. They don’t define you but they help make you. Imperfection is a wonderful thing.
I feel like I have a new highlight every day. The first time I held my book. The first time I was asked for an autograph. The first bit of fan mail I received. The first time I saw a kid dressed up as one of my characters for Book Week. It just keeps getting better.
We have just sold the rights to ‘Secrets Of A Schoolyard Millionaire’ to Italy and Estonia. Who would have thought? Today Italy and Estonia, tomorrow…THE WORLD!
I want my books to reflect the world I live in. My world is diverse, confusing, imperfect…so are my books and my characters. I don’t have all the answers and don’t pretend to. I want kids to know that’s ok. We are all just trying to do our best.
Possibly. Do you watch KidsWB? I had to rap about my book on TV and then got slimed. Talk about career highlights!
My sandwich. It’s really yum. If you would like a bite, just drop me a line, or send a carrier pigeon to collect.
