Carl Norac (29 June 1960) is a Walloon Belgian author of children's books and poetry.[1]

Biography[edit]

Carl Norac was born in Mons, Belgium in 1960,[2] as the son of poet Pierre Coran and comedian Irène Coran. In 1968, they moved to the small village Erbisoeul, now a part of Jurbise. He studied in Liège and became a teacher of French, but quit after two years. For the next six years, he travelled around the world, while working as a writer. His poetry collection Le maintien du désordre was awarded the Prix Robert Goffin. After witnessing an eruption of the Krakatau in 1993, he published Nemo et le volcan: with illustrations by Louis Joos, which was rewarded the Pomme d'Or, the European illustration award.

In 1996, he became a Professor of Literature at the Royal Conservatorium of Mons, a theatre school. In 1999, he moved to France, and the same year his daughter Else was born. By 2000, he was a full-time writer, mainly creating juvenile illustrated fiction.
