About the Author

Wendy Orr was born in Canada, and grew up in France, Canada and USA. After high school, she studied occupational therapy in England, married an Australian farmer, and moved to Australia. They had a son and daughter, and now live on five acres of bush near the sea. Her books have won awards in Australia and around the world, and have been translated into twenty-seven languages.

When Wendy was nine, she wrote a story about an orphan girl living on an island. Many years later, she remembered the feeling of writing that story, and started writing Nim's Island. The book became a Hollywood feature film in 2008, a year after Nim at Sea was published. Nim at Sea then became the film Return to Nim's Island.

Wendy has had many highlights in her writing career, including winning the CBCA Book of the Year and Prime Minister's Award for Children's Literature, and walking a red carpet with Jodie Foster, but believes that nothing compares to the thrill of the first vision of a new book.

Kerry Millard grew up in Canada surrounded by animals, including a monkey. She became a vet in Australia, took her crazy dog to a dog training club and drew some cartoons for its newsletter, which began her career as an award-winning cartoonist, illustrator and author. Kerry appears in the movie Nim's Island for about 2 seconds. She lives in Tasmania, painting and playing the fiddle.
