Hi there! I’m Jody.

I’m a happily retired teacher (Elementary Ed, thankyouverymuch) and now my days are a mix of reading, writing and editing, with occasional visits with my grandchildren. When I’m not spending time in the garden, you’ll find me in my other Happy Place—at my desk surrounded by books, paper and pen.

And erasers. Many, many erasers. 

I know there are a lot of online voices out there so I appreciate you stopping by. 


You can find out a little more about my voice and view from my Pacific Northwest corner of the world by clicking on the tabs at the top of this WELCOME page.

Before you go, I hope you’ll consider subscribing to my quarterly-ish email “Random Acts of Writing,” featuring poetry, posts and reflections as well as other Exclusive Content not found anywhere else. No spam ever & you can unsubscribe any time. Just Click HERE to subscribe.

Once again, thanks for stopping by!
