Amanda Keller has been a hugely popular figure on Australian television for more than 30 years. Starting out on the iconic children's show Simon Townsend's Wonder World she went on to work with Ray Martin on The Midday Show, as a reporter on the highly regarded science and technology series Beyond 2000, and on various Andrew Denton shows. More recently she was the Baby Boomer team captain on Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation and is now enjoying what she describes as a dream job as co-host of The Living Room. During most of this time Amanda has held down radio DJ jobs, from co-hosting a morning radio show with Andrew Denton on Triple M, to work on the nationally syndicated MyGeneration radio show and the top-rating Sydney morning radio program Amanda and Jonesy. Hilarious and often moving, Natural Born Keller tells Amanda's story from her childhood in Queensland and Western Australia; her teenage years as a self-described dag and Barry Manilow tragic in suburban Sydney; the happy, stimulating period she spent at a country university; her romantic encounters from "going around with" boys in her teen years to her marriage; her struggles with IVF; and the highs and lows of public life. Amanda also takes readers behind the scenes of TV and radio with numerous funny anecdotes about her adventures and mishaps. Throughout it all, she vividly evokes the fashion, music, TV shows, and films of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
