For years while growing up, Jodi Moore was told she thought like a child. Now, she sees it not only as a compliment, but as a mission.

An award winning author, Jodi is also an active member of SCBWI , a 'Critique Ninja' for Julie Hedlund's 12x12 Picture Book Challenge, a monthly blogger for YA Outside the Lines and a

raving fan/student of Story Teller Academy. She presents at schools, bookstores, festivals and conferences. 

Jodi is proud mom to two amazingly talented sons and lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Larry - who built Dragon's original sandcastle! - a laughing dove and a bunch of characters in her head.
