Jody Herpin writes with a southern accent.
Discovering her love of writing in the last five years, Jody just recently completed her first novel, “Weather Permitting,” and is currently working on a second. In 2015, Jody received First Place for Novel Submission at the Southeastern Writers Association Workshop for “Weather Permitting.” In 2014, she received Third Place for the Microcosm Award at the Southeastern Writers Association Workshop for her piece, “View of a Lifetime.” She’s constantly reading, researching and soaking up knowledge about her craft. Born in Savannah, Georgia, she has lived most of her life in the South, attending Decatur High School in Decatur, Georgia and living in Alabama, Georgia and North and South Carolina, Florida and Virginia. If she’s not writing, she is decorating her home, attempting to paint with watercolors, reading, rediscovering the guitar, walking her Mini-Australian Shepherd, Bella, or cheering for her beloved Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Jody married the love of her life in 2014, and she and her new husband live in Kennesaw, Georgia. She has two grown children and six amazing grandchildren all of whom live close enough “to holler at.”
