Mandy Sayer won the Australian-Vogel Award in 1989 for her novel Mood Indigo. She has written five works of fiction, edited one anthology (with another due for publication later this year), and written two memoirs, Dreamtime Alice, which won the 2000 National Biography Award and Velocity, which won the Age Non-Fiction Prize. She lives in Sydney.
'A joy to read . tells a story more vivid and unlikely than many modern works of fiction . Sayer tells her story colourfully, humorously and without a skerrick of self-pity . Trees would have died happy for once, if they'd known they would end up as the pages of such a special work of art.' -- The Bulletin
