The official memoir of Natalie Lowndes by author, Natalie Kile.
What’s in Just Nat?
Author, Natalie Kile, presents the life of Nat Lowndes through a mix of interviews with Nat, photographs, researched narrative, and interviews with people close to Nat – including Bev Brock, Helen Lowndes (Craig Lowndes’ Mum), Flav (Nat’s best friend), and more.
From Nat’s early adventures and experiences that shaped her, through meeting her husband, behind the scenes of the V8 motorsport industry, incredible fan anecdotes, starting a family, her connection with the land and buying her dream property with a ‘big arse trampoline’, the breakdown of Australia’s golden couple, a trip around Australia with her son and daughter, and life after V8 motorsport, one thing has remained constant–Natalie Lowndes’ absolute love of horses, one in particular.
Natalie Lowndes is a proud bogan. She describes reverently what that word means to her. She’s also generous, fierce, game, intelligent and funny. But the impression that lingers after you turn the last page is the thoughtfulness that Nat demonstrates to the people who support her.
This book is an example of Nat’s generosity and thoughtfulness. Responding to a random request by author, Natalie Kile, and spurred on by consistent requests from friends and social media followers over the years, Nat allowed the author into her close space to enable this book. Nat Lowndes is taking no proceeds from the sale of Just Nat – instead the author is donating a portion of sales to Nat Lowndes’ favourite charities.
For Like-Minded Friends & Followers
Nat Lowndes requested that friends and followers are taken care of, so the first 500 people who purchase Just Nat will receive edition numbers inside their book, and a personal message and autograph by Nat Lowndes.

About the Author:
Author Natalie Kile has a Bachelor of Journalism from Qld University of Technology. At 24 years old she was hit by a car just before she was to start work at the Courier Mail.

Her favourite quote is, ‘Life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself,’ (Bernard Shaw). Natalie lives in South East Queensland with her two daughters. Just Nat is her first book. Natalie Kile is one to watch… there’s more coming from this talented interviewer and author.
Testimonials for Just Nat
‘A really good read. Well written and nicely done to describe some events without the modern day trashing the ex style. A good behind the scenes story and insight into her world and really getting to know the real person behind the public version we saw on TV and at racing events–so much more and such a kind hearted soul.’Andrew Symons
‘I loved everything about this book but there is one story that blew my mind. Nat Lowndes once drove a special edition V8 interstate throughout the night to rock up on the doorstep of one of her then husband’s fans who was having a particularly bad time. I won’t say the rest here – because I’ll ruin the read – but it is this story in particular that converted me into a Nat Lowndes’ fan. I feel honoured to have been asked to preview this wonderful book, and I wish the author and Nat Lowndes all the best’…Cate Sawyer, Author.
I had the luck to have an early reading copy of Just Nat, and it’s one of the best biographies I’ve ever read. Even if you don’t know anything about car racing, I recommend this book just because Nat herself is great to hear from. There’re plenty of interviews and quotes in the book from people who knew Nat, and all of them add an extra facet to the story as it goes. See full review here.Nita Delgado, Reviewer
‘We are thrilled that the two Nats – Nat Lowndes and Nat Kile – chose us. We didn’t think we had a chance – we’re a small publisher. But it turns out we had the winning formula to sway Nat Lowndes. When she saw our cover design, which is quintessential Nat, we got the gig. Natalie Lowndes is a true-blue Aussie role model, and we can’t wait to hear your comments after you’ve read Just Nat. It moved us, it’ll move you too’…Carolyn Martinez, Director, Hawkeye Publishing
