"In more than fifteen years working with children’s authors, I’ve yet to meet someone who shows more instinctual understanding of children than Nat Amoore. A born entertainer and exceptional writer, I consider it a real privilege to have worked with her."

Amelia Lush, Head of Children’s Programs, Sydney Writers' Festival

"The kids LOVED it. The kids were excited and had great questions for Nat. The presentation was super engaging and entertaining. Nat’s energy was contagious and she taught the kids about storytelling in a really fun way."

Moriah College

"Nat Amoore is hands down the greatest motivator for getting kids to read & write! I adore watching her sessions as not only are the kids rolling on the floor laughing, the adults are in on the fun too.If you are looking for an author for your school/library, put Nat Amoore on the very top of your list."

Rachel Robson, Children's specialist at Gleebooks

"Tim was phenomenal! His sessions were well-pitched to his audience, who were all highly engaged for the entire hour. Tim left the students wanting more and we cannot keep his books on our shelves - the reservation list is LONG!“

Riverbank Public School

"Tim Harris delighted our upper primary students and their teachers with his creative writing workshops. Tim engaged the students with his hacks for narrative writing and the teachers could not have been happier with the content. Tim modified his workshop for each year level. His books are very much in demand in our library."

Genesis Christian College

"Tim was wonderful! Was extremely well-prepared, and made it interesting, fun and educational for the students. He is a natural with the kids, and they are still raving about his visit. He encouraged creativity and reinforced important structural pointers about the writing process. I have already recommended Tim to colleagues at other schools, and we would definitely love to have him back again."
