22 year old Roxie Golightly is a fun and carefree spirit...until she marries a wealthy
man and her role as a trophy wife leaves her isolated in a condo with an ironing board and an
obsessive desire to impress people.
When her marriage ends after seven years, Roxie's identity is buried so deep under layers of
furniture polish and piles of designer shoes that she doubts she can ever be the person she once was.
In an attempt to reconnect Roxie with the person she used to be, her friend creates the Good Life List a
list of challenges for her to complete by the end of the summer.
With list in hand, Roxie moves back to her hometown. With the help of a sexy and charismatic
guy from her past, Roxie is only a few check marks away from living the good life again, even
if it means getting thrown out of a bar, wearing a skirt the size of a belt or skinnydipping
neighbor's pool at 3am
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jodie has been writing fiction since she was a child and it was only natural she would pursue it as a career. While studying at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, she took every writing class offered before she received a BA in Media Arts. After graduation she moved to Wilmington, NC, with big dreams of one day writing for movies and TV.
Then she met a boy…and there was a wedding. A few years later came another boy, this one
even cuter. She gave up her “pipe dream” of being a Hollywood screenwriter and moved back to
Detroit to be a wife, mom and career waitress. But babies sleep a lot and she got bored and it was either
write or clean the house. So she wrote.
She began with a pregnancy/mom blog (http://underthebigmac.blogspot.com/) but she dreamed of doing
more with her writing than making people laugh with stories of baby poop. So she decided to take a chance,
to see if success wasn’t just a pipe dream. The Good Life is her first novel.
