Jody is a mother, author, and speaker in East Tennessee. She has always written as a hobby, but her ambition to publish was born with her second child, Scotty.
After struggling to conceive for six years, then clumsily (yet successfully) adopting, to now navigating an open adoption with Scotty’s birth parents, Dyer felt compelled to write The Eye of Adoption. She felt that someone needed to “tell it like it is” so others would be better equipped to handle the turbulent and triumphant, burdensome blessing of adoption.
Jody is a “compassionate humorist” writer and natural storyteller. Readers laugh and think “outside the barn” weekly on Jody’s varietal humor blog, Theories: Size 12, Go on and get mad but you know I’m right.
Jody holds a finance degree from The University of Tennessee, a Post-Baccalaureate degree in business education and Masters Degrees in Curriculum and instruction from Lincoln Memorial University. She lives in Knoxville with her husband Jeff and their two children, Houston and Scotty.
