Jodie has lived her entire life in Los Angeles, California, with the exception of a two-year "vacation" in New York City, where she earned her MFA at City College.
Jodie is a true child at heart. As someone who struggled with being different, the characters in books, media, and stories around the world showed her the beauty of diversity and individuality. She immersed herself in stories and became passionate about the heart and imagination of human beings.
Her hobbies include travel, reading, attending conventions, and creating - anything! She is proud of having traveled to over 32 countries and 48 states. She believes seeing the world and learning about different cultures and people is paramount to growing as individuals and as a society. Jodie also has a passion for geekdom. She loves Doctor Who, Supernatural, Disney, Marvel, DC, and will binge just about any TV show.
As Jodie found her voice and began volunteering for a non-profit teaching teens confidence, Jodie returned to her passion for stories to write fantasy novels and pursue a career in TV writing. She has earned many accolades for her writing. You can check out her work and awards on this website!
When it all comes down to it, for Jodie, it's about understanding and growing in life through living and sharing stories. The power they have to assign meaning to life helps inspire people in magical ways. Jodie hopes to share this magic with you through her writing.
