Laura Wood is a best-selling, award winning author of young adult and children’s fiction. Her young adult novels combine historical settings with coming of age adventures, romance and witty dialogue – perfect for fans of Eva Ibbotson and Dodie Smith. Her latest novel, The Agency of Scandal, is a delightful mix of Regency scandal and girl power, as an all female detective agency takes on the case of some missing jewels, and the blackmail and gaslighting that follow.
Join Laura as she discusses her inspirations, her writing process, favourite novels and much more. There will be opportunities to ask Laura questions and for book signing.
Laura also writes books for middle grade aged readers, including the Poppy Pym series, the Effie Kostas series, and The Animals of Madame Malone’s Music Hall, her distinctive style of wit and strong female characters threading through all her works. She also helps craft classic novels into formats friendly for reluctant readers.
