Here I am with my two biggest fans. As you see, I was looking for my next story and not at all interested in the photo op.

Who am I and why should you care? You should care because I care. No, really, I do. I hate to see people watch their dreams die because of terrible advice. I hate it so much that I’ve made it my mission to sort through as much as I can so that you don’t have to.

If that’s not enough, here’s my bio:

Jodi Thompson has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her earliest work, Skippy the Horse, was critically acclaimed by numerous family members and at least one teacher. She eventually discovered that her real talent lies in assisting others with their dreams. After spending some time as a freelance Book Manager and Publicist, she founded a small, traditional publishing house. In her copious free time, she has led writing workshops for children and teens, served on the organizational committees for several writing conferences, judged national writing contests, and presented at writing/publishing conferences across the United States. Fearful that she was getting too much sleep, she started Terrible Advice: Author Edition as guidance for writers in all stages. Chasing the high of her early success from Skippy the Horse, she also dabbles in cozy mysteries as Moira Bates. She lives in Texas with her husband and more animals than any sane person should have in their home.
