Back in the early days, when Jodi first started writing, she was a firm believer in talking heads, passive voice, and lots of sex. After a writer's intervention (during which she was pointed to Romance Writers of America, the PRO loops, and handed a ten pound wad of descriptive words) she was even more confused. These days, she believes in the transformational character arc and emotional structure, and will freely admit she actually "likes" sex.
When she's not sleeping, writing or working on developmental edits (a total joy!), Jodi likes to try out her workshops. She firmly believes that if you're going to set yourself up as a craft teacher, what you say needs to work. She also believes in paying it forward. If she's helped you over the years, the next time there's an opportunity--light a candle in someone's life and be a force for good. There are a lot of writers out there who give up, and we can fix that, you know?
