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. I also design websites for writers and authors, so if you need one, I can help.

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.
