- Why did you want to be a writer?
To fundraise for charities. My first hand-written cookbook I sold to raise money for the Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fund, and then I hand-wrote two books to raise money for the True Colours Charitable Trust in Hamilton. “Nic’s Cookbook”, which has been published by Scholastic is raising money for the NZ Muscular Dystrophy Association.
- What’s the best thing about being a writer?
The great experiences I have had, like meeting Simon Gault and Brett McGregor and going on “What Now” to do a cooking demonstration.
- What’s your favourite New Zealand book?
Taste of a Traveller, by Brett McGregor.
- What do you love most about New Zealand?
The great people that live here. And luging in Rotorua.
- What do you love most about libraries?
They are quiet and full of books.
Nic wrote Nic’s Cookbook, which was published last year by Scholastic, when Nic was ten years old. You can check out www.nicocool.com and www.facebook.com/nicscookbook for details about Nic and his cookbook.
