Jodie has had a lifelong passion for reading, especially fiction. She worked at a variety of jobs before she became an English and French teacher, received her master's degree in literature, and became a school librarian. As a freelance fiction manuscript editor, Jodie specializes in thrillers, romantic suspense, mysteries, and other fast-paced, suspenseful fiction.
Jodie's favorite authors include Robert Crais, Sandra Brown, Lee Child, Karin Slaughter, Michael Connelly, Nora Roberts, Harlan Coben, Janet Evanovich, Dean Koontz, Lisa Scottoline, John Grisham, Lisa Gardner, and many more.
When she's not editing, writing, or reading novels or books on writing compelling fiction, Jodie loves to pursue her two other passions, photography and traveling. She has traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East, and continues to sneak away whenever she gets the chance.
