Jodie Pierce

Biography

I live in Cleveland, Ohio with my husband who has given me a fairy-tale marriage. I am a seventeen time published author. I have been writing short stories all my life. I've had a fascination with vampires since I was a child so that tends to be my subject matter. Halloween is my favorite holiday! I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, reading, writing reviews, watching movies, Reiki and listening to music. I'm intrigued by the paranormal and enjoy doing research for my stories. I was an exchange student in Brasil during high school so you will find references to that in some of my stories. I'm living the American Dream!

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was traditionally published and unhappy with their services. I looked into other ways to publish and found Smashwords and Amazon publishing so that's when I started publishing my own books (and charity books).
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to express myself in a way that serves my soul. There are also many times that I have great dreams of which I turn into my stories. I love to write so much, only second to loving my hubby. Writing is a creative outlet for me. I've always considered myself artistic ever since high school where I wrote for my school newspaper and yearbook. It's something that makes me feel good and makes me use my creative brain.

Smashwords book reviews by Jodie Pierce

  • Tunuftol's Fortress of Light (Tunuftol book 1) on Dec. 12, 2012

    Tunuftol’s Fortress of Light was a wonderfully woven story full of fun, charisma and entertainment. Ms. Snizek has fully developed characters what are loveable and make you feel a gamete of emotions throughout the story. She writes in a manner that the reader feels like they are right there as part of the group in the story and the things there are actually happening around you. You are put right into the story as you read it. A young girl and her brother are pushed around through the adoption system until they are found by a caring Grandmotherly type old lady. Krissa, the main character starts having inexplicable dreams and her little brother Micah knows more than she gives him credit for. Krissa’s new friend Pin and her twin brother Khevin start to unravel Krissa’s questions about her dreams. She has become The Chosen One and is taken on a mission to take over the faction that has upset Khevin’s family from the throne. She has to learn her powers and follow her dreams which Pin helps out with as she’s a dream weaver. The group of friends accumulated at school take on a trip to find this other place they left as children and struggle against the evil they face. Will they succeed in the end? Who is the most valuable and who keeps the most secrets? Will Krissa know what to do when the time comes? Author Ann Snizek creates a world where any reader would like to go. The travel she puts this young group on is a treat for the reader. As you learn along with the main character, you feel for her and learn some interesting facts. She gives you a whole world where you can emerge yourself for awhile and follow along with this group of friends. I would recommend this as a must read for anyone who likes to get themselves entirely involved in a story. This is a page turner that is hard to put down. It’s an easy read with short chapters that move you along through the story at a quick pace. Ms. Snizek has done a great job creating a story that everyone should read!
