Writer of liminal fantasy
Welcome to my website!
I’m Jody Norman, author of New Trails, the first book in my New Trails fantasy series, and I’m currently working on the sequel, Hidden Trails. New Trails, Book 1, is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble; you can download the first five chapters by signing up below.
I also write solution-focused articles for various markets, teach a class in the Sustainability Minor at the University of Colorado at Denver, and coordinate the Gila River Festival in Silver City, New Mexico. I love cosmology, quantum physics, and the paranormal, and hiking wilderness with my dogs and my partner of thirty-seven years.

New Trails is a portal fantasy, where Troy, a young man from our world, steps across a threshold and into another one, embarking on an epic journey. He has to learn how to trust — in himself, in his companion Kieran, in his own learning, in the reality of the very different world he finds himself in, one which seems to operate by completely different rules than what he’s used to. And in finding and walking his own path, he finds a life, and a lifework, and a relationship that makes living worthwhile.
