Hello and Welcome!

Come inside and check out my site. I’m Jodie, your tour guide, and I’ll be introducing you to the muddled-up, mixed-up world of a children’s book writer. You can purchase my books on the Books page, and learn a little bit about me and my writing on the About page. Look for my thoughts on writing and any new books I have coming out on my News blog. Thanks for stopping by!



Praise for HALF A GIRAFFE? (2018):

“Small children also want to accomplish tasks beyond their abilities with the assistance and encouragement of wise and patient grown-ups, and this story will resonate. Working together, these animal friends are good models for cooperative play.”

–Kirkus Reviews

Praise for THIS IS A SERIOUS BOOK (2016):

“The meta-picture-book trend continues in this silly offering…. Together, text and art are sure to provoke laughs.”

–Kirkus Reviews

“[This] book is just wonderful. So funny, wildly entertaining, fun for adults to read, engaging and laugh out loud for children. Picture book magic.”

–Leah Thaxton, Publisher Faber Children’s Books

“I ADORE this book!”

–Virginia Duncan, Publisher Greenwillow Books (Harpercollins US)

‘I’d love to work on your books, and wish I could publish more of them!’

–Sue Tarsky, former Publisher at Quarto
