Farmer Kidd was born in Sydney, Australia, and supposedly could dance before he could walk. Once he learned how to read, and soon afterwards discovered the cinema, his love of the arts exploded. Graduating from high school as valedictorian (he's proudly a nerd), he went on to university before landing himself some interesting jobs - including working in a maximum security prison, and training aircrew to jump out of aircrafts. Passionate about writing for young adults, you'll find Farmer still dances (albeit in his living room) as he taps away at his laptop, creating worlds set mostly in a contemporary fantasy/magical realism tinted landscape, all the while eating chocolate, which he says he can't live without.
