Joleene Moody is a former central New York television reporter and anchor turned freelance writer, ghostwriter, and playwright. When she’s not writing books or blog posts for other busy entrepreneurs, Joleene is working on her own original television and screenplay ideas. Her goal is to become a successful scriptwriter.
During the past 15 years, Joleene has penned three of her own books, hundreds of human interest stories and news articles, and various ghost books for entrepreneurs, self-help coaches, and those looking for a powerful memoir. Her own personal writing includes a screenplay, stage play, and two television pilot ideas. Because of her knowledge and experience in television writing, she has been contracted by clients to write scripts for video, too.
From her tiny little town in central New York, this 45-year-old mother and wife is defying the odds and showing the world that age, location, and late-life career changes mean nothing. Passion and perusing the hunger inside of us means everything.
