newpic7Jody Wallace grew up in the South in a very rural area. She went to school a long time and ended up with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. Her resume includes college English instructor, technical documents editor, market analyst, web designer, and general all around pain in the butt. She currently lives in Tennessee with her family: 1 husband, 2 kids, 4 cats, 1 dragon. One of her many alter egos is “The Grammar Wench,” which should give you an indication of her character as well as why she currently offers freelance editing. She is a terrible packrat and likes to amass vintage clothing, books, Asian-inspired kitchenware, gnomes, yarn, and other items that threaten to force her family out of the house. She also likes cats. A lot. The proof of this is her labor of love (as opposed to her career labor): 

jodywallaceMs. Wallace’s approach to writing is to tell as many outlandish lies as she can get her readers to swallow. Her dream is to be moderately well-paid for this service. She is active in RWA and occasionally conducts writing workshops. Among topics she’s been known to cover are training sessions for contest judges (she coordinated her local RWA chapter contest for many years), point of view, dialogue, punctuation and creativity enhancement. She would probably visit your writing group and do a workshop if you meet in driving distance of Nashville.

Her headshots were taken by Cindy Sarlo Photography of Dixon, TN. Check this one out! That dress is vintage 70s, friends. 100% disco polyester.

Oh, and in this one, do I or do I not favor Lynda Carter the Magnificent?? It’s something in the eyes, and the fact that, right below the photo, I’m totally twirling my Lasso of Truth.
