JODI LAPALM ~ FICTION AUTHOR
The love for written words and fictional worlds led me to pen short stories and poetry for my own escape and enjoyment. In time, life took hold. I studied Creative Writing, married my amazing husband, had an even more amazing son, moved countless times, undertook a series of fulfilling jobs, and battled breast cancer. Born and educated in the Midwest, I finished my first manuscript in 2010 and published it as a legacy for my son.
Even when bruised, I believe life is beautiful and that shattered dreams are not forever broken. Second chances do exist, and those who become lost can find their way back. My stories explore psychological turmoil and highlight contemporary women faced with the overwhelming complexities of self, family, love, and daily life. I reside in the Great Lakes region with my husband and son where I enjoy teaching myself new things, traveling with my boys, and a really good martini.
