About the Author

It’s the people traditionally left out of the frame who interest Laura the most, as well as what happens after what would be the climax in many stories. A couple reuniting after the war, in IN THE MOOD; a woman who has changed her name and started a new life, only to find her old life catching up with her, in THE CLEANSKIN; what happens when you break up with the perfect person, in CHOOSING ZOE. Laura’s novels have been shortlisted for the NSW Literary Awards, the ABC Fiction Prize and the Young Australian Readers’ Awards and published in France, the US and the UK. Laura grew up in Sydney and graduated with a BA, Communications from the University of Technology, Sydney. She has worked in the areas of youth policy, social justice and health promotion, and has travelled widely, including living for spells in Germany, India, the UK, and New Guinea. She now lives in a small town near Byron Bay on the east coast of Australia with her family.

I really loved this book - while reading it, I had the same feeling as when I read one of my other favourite books, For Love Alone by Christina Stead. Both books feature strong and intriguing female characters, trying to carve out a life in 1930s/40s Sydney, which is so brilliantly brought to life, and so many of their struggles seem so contemporary. Stead said: ''I'm a psychological writer, and my drama is the drama of the person". I felt this with In The Mood, with its real and compelling characters, their weaknesses and mistakes not skipped over, but deeply explored, to reveal the true "drama of the person".
