Jodi has been telling stories since she can remember. But like many storytellers, it wasn’t something she pursued straight out of school.
After a varied career from real estate to freelance writing (including by-lines in The Sydney Morning Herald (digital), Women’s Agenda, and Essential Kids), Jodi decided it was finally time to get the stories out of her head and onto the page.
Ten years and eight manuscripts later, Jodi completed what would become her debut novel.
‘The Memories We Hide’, a contemporary drama, was independently published in 2019 and has received wonderful reviews and feedback from readers.
Jodi is currently working on a lighter style of uplifting fiction and has one manuscript currently out on submission, another in draft stage, and many more ideas filling up her notebooks.
Jodi lives in regional Victoria on a mini-farm with her husband, daughters, two golden retrievers, two cats, one horse, and six chooks; all who are constantly hungry.
When Jodi isn’t writing you’ll find her reading her favourite Australian authors, in the kitchen baking sweet treats, or researching her next travel destination. She’s also a self-professed trivia master and her special subject on Mastermind would be ‘80s music or 90s rom-coms.
