Jody Norman

I'm a Westerner by heritage, raised in Tucson, and I've lived in Colorado, Georgia, and now New Mexico. I'm a sustainability writer, consultant, college instructor. I teach a class in the Sustainability Minor at the University of Colorado Denver, and I'm currently revising the sequel to my first novel, Hidden Trails.

I'm also a published novelist. I love thresholds, and portals, and passing through them. Places where you're not quite here and not quite there. Or in other words, liminal spaces. To me, this is where potential and opportunity wait for the unwary passersby, and I enjoy placing my characters in these places and seeing them revealed for who they truly are and can be.

Nature and myself have an intimate relationship, and it's key to all my writing, running through my novels like the fractal veins of a watershed. And since I believe that nature includes our place in the universe, astronomy and quantum physics and cosmology and system theory (not to mention parapsychology and the paranormal) inform the structure of my fantasy worlds.
