JODY MEDLAND has worked as a freelance writer, author and screenwriter in London for nearly 20 years, collaborating with various well established names and brands.
His work experience began in television, where he wrote commercials for clients such as The Times, Kellogg’s, Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV, T-mobile and SKY.
Jody continued his growth by writing and directing several short films, starting with Over the Edge, which was shown to much acclaim at BAFTA. His love and passion for creating original work also led him to teach creative writing at extra-curricular drama schools The Pauline Quirke Academy and Theatrix, where he was highly praised for his contribution.
In 2012, Jody won a Gold Medal at the prestigious Race for Apps competition in London for his live-action interactive game Track the Ripper. He also created an interactive learning resource, titled AD-SKL – a concept that Wolverhampton Council funded him to develop.

In 2015, Jody released his debut paperback novel The Moors, which led Pen Works Media into a brave and exciting new era.
