Jodi Lea Stewart was born in Texas but grew up in Apache County on a cattle ranch near Concho, Arizona. She left the University of Arizona in Tucson to move to San Francisco, where she learned about peace, love, and exactly what she didn't want to do with her life. Since then, Jodi graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Business Management, raised three children, worked as an electro-mechanical drafter, penned humor columns for a college periodical, wrote regional western articles and served as managing editor of a Fortune 500 company newsletter. She currently lives in Arizona with her husband, Mark, a crazy Standard poodle, a rescue cat, and numerous gigantic, bossy houseplants. SUMMER OF THE ANCIENT is Jodi's debut novel and Book One of the Silki, the Girl of Many Scarves trilogy -- a "Nancy Drew meets Tony Hillerman" adventure-mystery. CANYON OF DOOM came next, and VALLEY OF SHADOWS hit the shelves February 2018, completing this sassy, fun caper through the Navajo Nation. Jodi's first historical novel, BLACKBERRY ROAD debuted June 2018. "Trouble sneaks in like an oily twister one afternoon in 1934 Oklahoma pulling Biddy Woodson into a dark mystery that changes her forever." What's next? THE ACCIDENTAL ROAD, an adventure-mystery highlighting an underbelly of life in the 1950s few knew existed. it debuts September 2019. Check out my Amazon author page at
