Jody Hedlund is the author of over twenty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award.

Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).

When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.

Jody Hedlund answered Savannah Morgan's question: Jody Hedlund
It is a time slip book, involving the Middle Ages. The title is Come Back to Me. And it will release next summer 2021 by Revell Publishers. If you've ever read Susanna Kearsley's The Rose Garden, it's something along that line. :-)
