About Jody

Jody Houser decided she wanted to be a writer when she was eight years old and never looked back. For better or worse, no one ever suggested that she stop. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.

Starting in 2006, Jody began experimenting with webcomics. She is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.

Jody has been a contributing writer to numerous comic anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic and Womanthology: Space from IDW, CMYK: Magenta from Vertigo, and Avengers: No More Bullying from Marvel. She also contributed to several comic anthologies that were launched on Kickstarter, including Dead Roots and Rise: Comics Against Bullying.

Recently, Jody has written Orphan Black for IDW and Agent May for Marvel.
