Jodie is a full-time mum, part-time writer and sometime poet. A deep thinker who uses words to process the myriad of experiences of life.
She writes about shared experiences, and the insight and growth that can come from even the darkest times. Tapping into themes which are universal, she has become a sought after speaker and blogger on issues impacting women as mothers, mentors and healers.
Jodie writes candidly about her own personal grief, sharing her insights as a way of opening the way for healing. In 2012, Jodie self-published Blank Pages; a book of poetry. These poems chronicle her journey through the pain of infertility and miscarriage, to the reawakening of faith and the promise of healing.
In her writing and on her blog she continues to investigate the journey of life: the beautiful; the painful; the everyday; and the mundane. She has a heart for encouraging women on their life journey, particularly when that journey traverses the harder places of grief and pain.
Jodie has always been inspired by words and language. Based in Perth, Western Australia, Jodie is the mother of two spirited primary-aged girls, and has been married for nineteen years to Simon.
She loves alliteration, she hates writing in third person, and she can never give up chocolate (not even for Lent)!
Jodie loves to hear from her readers and you can connect with her by email or on social media.
