Jodell Sadler has served as an art director, marketing consultant, senior designer before earning her MFA at Hamline University, where she focused on sharing her critical thesis project, PACING PICTURE BOOKS & BEYOND. She’s since worked as a professor, secondary Freshman & Senior English AP/Dual Credit teacher, and founded KidLit College, a webinar, classes & critique community for writers and illustrators.
Jodell teaches online and presents at conferences and events on pacing, and writes and presents with Writer’s Digest University. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) and passionate about helping writers and illustrators advance their careers.
Recent titles range from board books to teen titles: IF ANIMALS SAID I LOVE YOU by Ann Whitford Paul; SNOW BEAST and DOG ADOPTION DAY by Phil Gosier; HEDGEHOG’S 100th DAY OF SCHOOL by Lynne Marie; MR. McGINTY’S MONARCHS by Linda Vander Heyden; BRUNHILDA’S BACKWARDS Day by Shawna J.C. Tenney; FARAWAY FRIENDS by Russ Cox, and middle grade series: FRIDAY BARNES, illustrated by Phil Gosier; PUPPY PIRATES, illustrated by Russ Cox, and middle grade nonfiction titles: BOLD WOMEN OF MEDICINE: 21 Stories of Astounding Discoveries, Daring Surgeries, and Healing Breakthroughs by Susan M. Latta, among others.
Jodell is looking to add picture book, graphic novel, and middle grade author/illustrators to her list. She’s looking for fiction and nonfiction with humor and heart. She enjoys books that emotionally connect, provide reader interaction. Fresh voice and concept is best in board books, picture books, chapter books, and middle-grade projects (illustrated and graphic), especially those that incorporate nature, wildlife, cultural experiences, contemporary challenges or mystery, as well as biographies that celebrate the difference one person has made in the world.
