Hi, I’m Jodi, and I write commercial contemporary fiction. I live in regional Victoria, Australia with my family on our mini-farm. When I’m not writing, you’ll find me with my nose in a good book, or in the kitchen baking and dreaming of my next traveling adventure.

I’m currently working on a number of novels, and awaiting feedback from my first novel which has been submitted to publishers and agents.

Here on my website you’ll find writing tips, advice, author interviews, book reviews, and updates on my journey towards publication and beyond. I love supporting and encouraging aspiring writers, so please take a look around and subscribe to my newsletter to stay updated.
