Jodie is a writer, speaker, poet and mother. An unashamed words girl who writes to process the myriad of experiences of life.

In her writing and on her blog she investigates 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 writes candidly about her own personal grief, sharing her insights as a way of opening the way for healing.

In July 2019, she released her new book, Beauty in the Ashes: Learning to Lament. Through her reflection, poems, and sharing stories of pain and loss, Jodie invites you to discover the importance of lament; and how the hurt and the healing are intertwined.

In 2012, Jodie published Blank Pages; a book of poetry. These poems chronicle her journey through the pain of infertility and miscarriage.

Based in Perth, Western Australia, Jodie is the mother of two spirited primary-aged girls, and has been married for over twenty 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.
