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), and copywriting – 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 published in 2019 and has received wonderful reviews and feedback from readers.

Jodi’s second novel is a lighter style feel-good fiction that combines food, travel and romance and will be published by Brio Books in September 2021. 

Jodi’s other love is baking. From rich, fudgy chocolate cakes to zesty lemon slice. There is always a container or two of freshly baked goodies in the pantry. 

Jodi lives in regional Victoria on a mini-farm with her husband, daughters, Sorbet the golden retriever, Sonny the ragdoll, AJ the rescue cat, Buddy the rescue horse, and a handful of chooks providing fresh eggs for baking.

When Jodi isn’t writing or baking you’ll find her reading her favourite Australian authors, or dreaming of her next travel adventure. She’s also a self-professed trivia master and her special subject on Mastermind would be ‘80s music or 90s rom-coms.
