Hi, I’m Jodi, author of contemporary fiction. I write in two genres – drama, and light fiction. 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 travelling adventure.

My debut novels for both genres will be published in 2019.
