Julie chats with Nat Amoore

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 came out last year with Penguin Random House. It had great success as both Dymocks and QBD’s ‘Kids Book Of The Month’, becoming Australia’s #1 bestselling debut Aussie children’s fiction in 2019.


Pamela chats with Dee White

Dee wanted to be a writer since she was seven years old. She has published more than 20 books for children and young adults and many articles, short stories and poems.

She has been lucky enough to combine her loves of writing and travel into a career which takes her all over the world writing, researching and presenting workshops. She got to spend a WHOLE MONTH in Paris doing the research and writing one of her latest books,  Beyond Belief. Her writing and writing workshops have taken her to Sharjah and Amsterdam and she is prepared to go almost anywhere (even do a tour of Paris sewers) to track down a good story.
