Jody has written novels for the last 20 years (with a hiatus when her children were young). After many years of writing and honing her skills, she finally garnered national attention with her double final in the Genesis Contest, a fiction-writing contest for unpublished writers through ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). Her first published book, The Preacher’s Bride (2010 Bethany House Publishers), became a best seller and has won multiple awards.
Jody has been married for twenty years to her college sweetheart. Her husband has been one of her biggest cheerleaders over the years, doing his best to understand and support her writing even in the days when publication was only the whisper of a dream. Now in the midst of raising a busy family, he happily helps her carve out writing time. He is even learning to cook something beyond frozen pizza and hotdogs, so that after extended writing time on Saturdays, when Jody enters the kitchen she never knows what new meal awaits!
