Novellas and Short Stories

The Dark Office


A lizard overlord who’s had enough and quits her job to run a drive-through sushi joint.

A developer consumed by his own API, faking his death in order to claim insurance money.

And a feminist vampire who invests in start ups then takes a decade-long nap.

These are just some of the quirky characters you’ll meet in The Dark Office, a strange yet familiar place in our not-to-distant-future, inspired by people in real life.


The Australian Pen.

Jodie has a number of short stories published in all three of the Australian Pen anthologies: Obliquity, Futurevision and The Evil Inside Us.
