Larsen came to a turning point in her life in 1992 when
one of her children was diagnosed with a learning disability.
After attaining success as a CPA for over fifteen years
in corporate America, she realized that she had achieved
her accounting career goals and was ready to move on to
new challenges in an environment that would allow her
to spend more time at home.
During the hours the children were in school, she sought
an outlet for her creative energies and also a way to
contribute to the community in a meaningful way. Always
an avid reader, writing seemed the natural choice for
her second career. Within weeks, Jodie realized she had
found her true love. A talented, prolific author, Jodie
Larsen is currently at work on her eigth novel. Her record-breaking
first book Deadly Company, is
a medical thriller set in Tulsa, Ok. Her second novel,
Deadly Silence, explores the seedy underworld of
child kidnapping. Sisters & Secrets - a
novel written with three other nationally bestselling
authors - combines humor, romance, and suspense. Larsen's
fourth novel, Deadly Rescue, chillingly recounts a tale
of corporate espionage.
Volunteering at area schools, Jodie encourages children
to explore their writing talents. She also enjoys speaking
to adults about following their dreams, even if they may
seem unattainable. As a spokesperson for the American
Lung Association Jodie shares her experiences and attitudes
as an asthmatic runner, encouraging people afflicted with
lung diseases to live life to its fullest every single
day. She also is an avid supporter of the Tulsa City County
Library System as well as the coach of Jenks Rage!, an
under-14 girl's soccer team.
Jodie graduated from Oklahoma State University with a
degree in Accounting. She is a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma
where she currently resides with her husband and two children.
