History

Jody 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, 2 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.

Writing Style


Jody 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. In addition to writing and editing, she has been known to conduct writing workshops. Included topics are training sessions for contest judges (she coordinated a 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’re 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.


No comment on the fact these photos of Jody Wallace were taken some odd years ago and author has since gained many soft, plush assets, wrinkles, grey hairs, new glasses, and is in dire need of a haircut (as of October 2020).
