Hi, I’m Jodi, and I write commercial contemporary fiction.

I am addicted to emojis, I have a deep-seated love for the oxford comma, and I am a self-confessed over-user of the exclamation point!

I live on a mini-farm in regional Australia and 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. Publishing is a slow process, so I’m keeping myself busy and continuing to write while I’m waiting.

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.
