Hello! I’m Jodie and I’m an editor and writer of children’s fiction and nonfiction. I’m American and British and I live in Hertfordshire, in England.

I’ve published 12 books for kids, I have 8 more coming out in 2022 and 2023, and I have lots, lots more hidden in a closet that may (or may not) contain my secret stash of chocolate (it does) that I am hiding from my children. I can’t wait to share them with you (the books, not the chocolate. I never share chocolate.)


Here’s my official bio:

Jodie Parachini is an American/British author and editor who currently lives in Hertfordshire, England. Jodie has worked as a writer and researcher for museums around the world, including the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. She is the author of numerous children’s books including The Grand Bug HotelHeroRat!, Listening to the Stars, and This Is a Serious Book. Her books have been awarded starred reviews by Kirkus, Booklist, and the School Library Journal. Jodie can be found at www.JodieParachini.com
