Jodaéa began her literary journey in 2008, chronicling her past experiences. She says her inspirations come from recalling past experiences, adding an element of fiction, and a shocking twist, then let the stories write themselves! Every situation in her novels is based in fact, with fictional backstories. However, there is always a lesson to be learned in the end! Jodaéa's novels are cross-genre projects with drama, psychological terror, romance, and mystery elements. Her novels have been reviewed internationally in South Africa, India, and Palestine.
Jodaea explains, "I know my stories are interesting, entertaining, and insightful. My novels have stories within the story. Because most avid readers love instant gratification through literary escapes, my novels are quick reads. I don't employ useless trivia or insignificant narration to fill pages. I love to keep my readers pulled into my stories by appealing to their five senses. What are the characters feeling, tasting, smelling, hearing, and seeing? I try not to give the reader a chance to put my book down!"
2021 Author of the Year nominee by ACHI Magazine, Jodaéa is currently working on her fourth novel, set to be released soon. Additionally, her most beloved venture, the Novels By Jodaéa Individual Excellence Scholarship, will re-open its application process in January 2023!
