“Your visit will be talked about for years to come. Your fantastic large group presentation and small group writers’ workshop were incredible experiences for these students. You are a rock star!” —Tracy Lynn Scaglione, Media Specialist, Douglasville, GA

Award-winning, middle grade and young adult author Jody Feldman (jodyfeldman.com) had early thoughts of working as a treasure hunter, a codebreaker, a movie director, and an inventor. Through a series of happenstances, however, she enrolled in the Mizzou School of Journalism and discovered she could write. Her MG novels—The Seventh Level and The Gollywhopper Games series (HarperCollins/Greenwillow)—have appeared on 26 state reading lists and have won, among other honors, the Georgia Children’s Book Award and the Grand Canyon Readers Award. School Library Journal calls her debut YA novel, No Way Home (Sourcebooks, 2022), an “excellent choice for any young adult collection… also appropriate for mature middle school readers.” And says that, “Fans of mystery/thrillers with puzzles…will devour this book.” 

When she’s not obsessing over the next plot twist, you may find her watching sports, solving puzzles, on the road (just 9 more U.S. states to go), or baking the best secret-recipe oatmeal cookies you’ll ever eat. Jody lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
