Behind the Words
I'm Jodie Moone, a writer from Derbyshire in the United Kingdom.
I've always found these things really difficult. I'm never sure what is interesting to anyone, so if I ramble, I am sorry. In my spare time, when I'm not violently throwing words at my laptop, I like to read in corners of my house away from my husband.
Sometimes, I can be spotted taking out my corgi named Cheddar on long walks to stare at flowers, but I'm an indoor-human, if I do say so myself.
If I'm not there or hiding behind a computer, I'm usually telling my husband my next big plans for the house. His response is usually: "Shouldn't you be writing?"
Writing isn't something I found naturally, always believing I could never be as good as the books under my arms, but that never stopped my imagination from soaring. I have never been far without a book, and even upon finishing the last page, my mind would be buzzing with what I thought could come next.
At one stage, I think I knew my secondary school library better than I knew the school layout.
After a lot of soul searching, wondering what I wanted to do in my life, I realised the answer had been in my hands for years.
Books. Stories. Spreading joy through words.
Since the beginning of 2019, I've been putting my ideas down onto pages. I'm currently working on an original story about a young adult witch who is pushing the boundaries of her district and country. This is currently a work-in-progress, but I'm hoping to share it with the world when the time is right.
