My spotlight author today is Jodi Stone - check her out.
Jodi Stone is a wife and mama of three little girls: Brooke, Alexis and Savannah. It's important that they are mentioned to know how she became a writer, because they are the ultimate inspiration for everything ske writes. She has been happily married for almost fifteen years, and started writing poetry to heal her lonely heart since her husband was away a lot when they were first married (Navy).
She attended college here and there while raising her children and writing, and finally graduated from USF in December of 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in English and Creative Writing. This is another important part to who she is because she forever dreamt about the day she'd have a degree. And to her it still feels surreal.
She is a lover of many things: family, friends, movies, great books, and sort of an addict to party planning (okay, a complete addict). She starts planning her daughters' birthday parties months in advance, and is thankful her husband doesn't give her too much grief about it.
