Amanda Noll
Back to Authors and Illustrators list
Amanda Noll is the author of I Need My Monster, and the upcoming Hey, That's My Monster!
illustrated by
Howard McWilliam.

Born and raised in Canberra, Australia, Amanda moved to the United States as a teen. After
marrying her college sweetheart, she began working in the purchasing division of a private
university (which was ironic, since she despises shopping). After a while, Amanda left the business
world to attend to the business of raising children, and to concentrate on her writing. Her work has
appeared in Hopscotch and Family Fun magazines. She blames her fundamentally twisted sense of
humor on either genetics or being raised on a steady stream of Australian humor and science
fiction.. I Need My Monster is her first picture book.

Amanda lives in Spanaway, Washington with her husband and children. The monster under her
bed is named Gertie.
