From Jody: Readers, please "friend" me here on GoodReads and Facebook (Author Jody Dyer, The Eye of Adoption). I am a "compassionate humorist" writer and love learning from and sharing with readers of all genres.

NOW AVAILABLE:

Theories: Size 12, Go On, Get Mad, But You Know You Agree. In my "Theories" I articulate the woes of middle-aged, married, working mothers. Using humor and anecdotes (all true stories), I encourage readers to laugh through frustration and stress to seek enjoyment in everyday life. You will find a friend on every page.

From the back cover:
"...readers gain a new perspective on marching bands, zoos, sports parents, teachers, outdoor weddings, tailgates, bicycle guys, and much, much more."

Coming October 2017: Book 2 of The

Writing is a joyful, cathartic, expressive experience. But, most of all, it's an adventure in an industry filled with creative, free-spirited people. I love meeting other authors, whether in person or on-line. I especially enjoy talking with readers and helping them find "hope through humor" in my work. I feel like I am contributing to the world.(less)

Maybe it's the teacher in me or perhaps my nonconformist writer's attitude (well, except for grammar---I conform to grammar rules), but I seem to notice poor communication and bad business practices when people around me don't.

Today, I came within minutes of getting hypothermia at a "shelter." Uh-huh. Read and learn. Go on, get mad, but you know you agree.

If you need enlightenment, read this book. Denise connects readers to spiritual awakening through Biblical text and insightful (yet relatable) commentary. She's a thinker, and you also will be after reading Kairos Moments.
