NAT AMOORE is a Sydney-based writer who is passionate about encouraging kids to read and write and explore their imagination without boundaries. Her first middle-grade novel 'Secrets Of A Schoolyard Millionaire' is out now with Penguin Random House, with a second novel expected in 2020. She will also have a short story in Total Quack Up Again!, the follow up to Total Quack Up due out in October 2019.

Nat (along with fellow writers Kate Simpson and Liz Ledden) hosts kid lit podcast One More Page which has had over 35,000 downloads and was a finalist in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category in the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards.

Nat's debut middle grade manuscript was awarded 3rd place at the CYA Conference in 2017. At last year’s CYA, she placed 1st & 2nd in the Picture Book category and 2nd in Chapter Books for younger readers. She was a recipient of the CBCA Maurice Saxby Creative Development Program for 2018 and is a proud Role Model for Books In Homes.

Nat has completed multiple courses at the AWC and NSWWC. She is a member of two different writers’ groups full of inspiring peers and multiple published writers and a member of SCBWI & the CBCA.

But most importantly, she used to be a trapeze artist, had a pet kangaroo when she was little and her secret superpower is making stuff up (not lying, that's totally different!).
