Feel free to have a look around. You can find different things going on in sections of this site. I’ve tried to keep it nice and tidy and as easy to navigate as possible.
The About tab will give you some more detail on me, my books and where I’ve blogged.
The Above & Beyond Series tab is all about the adventures of Aeron Lorelei and her friends. There are seven books in the series, so as each one is released, I’ll add them to the tab. You can find all the reviews and awards there too.

Other has some extra things for you to explore, such as: Short stories, poetry, Inky Inspiration (where I interview other authors and publishers from the industry,) early blog on why I started to write and media and appearances which includes videos and interviews.

The Empath- Above & Beyond * Book I
Runner up – Rainbow Awards 2014 (honorable mention)
Finalist – GCLS Goldie Awards 2015
Blessed and cursed with the ability to sense the feelings, past, and future of those around her, Aeron lived as a misfit child until she took the blame for the death of her best friend’s little brother when she was sixteen.
Released from the correctional facility, Aeron must go back to her hometown–the scene of the crime that no one in town has forgotten. But, Aeron must deal with more than just animosity. Someone in town is abducting and killing young girls, and with Aeron under suspicion, her distant father, the spectre of her Grandmother, and her psychiatrist–who is more than she appears–must all work together to figure out who’s invaded their town before it’s too late. Aeron must use the burdens that she has spent her life trying to hide to prove her innocence and save those taken.
“Jody Klaire’s debut novel is an exhilarating rush, a cross between the best of X Files and Orange Is The New Black. Fast-paced, sharp and very, very smart. Promises to be a smash hit of a series”
“The twists and turns kept things interesting and always moving forward. Even events that you wouldn’t expect to be related to the crime were deftly folded into the plot and given purpose. It all made sense. It was crafted well. The characters are rich and multi-layered, but there’s so much more to uncover about them. I’m glad Klaire is going to let us into their lives again.”
“I’m not giving anything away but, The Empath is a taut tense thriller proving that there is two sides to every story and that everybody has their armour. How this series isn’t in mainstream bookshops, I don’t know… Bring on book two!”

“Aeron is back and badass as ever.”

BLIND TRUST – The Above & Beyond Series * Book II
Runner up – Rainbow Awards 2015 (honorable mention)
Aeron Lorelei finds herself part of the mysterious Criminal Investigations Group and is looking forward to catching up with Commander Renee Black after being locked in bootcamp for six months. However, something isn’t quite right with Renee and Aeron can’t figure out why she is pushing her away. When mother nature puts a mountain in their path (literally) and Renee does the unthinkable, it is left to Aeron to clear Renee’s name. Stuck in a small Colorado town with only a few days to solve a mystery, Aeron needs some ‘spiritual’ support.’ Saving Renee involves using the burdens she loathes and every ounce of belief she has.
It looks bleak for Renee, and when the danger lurking in the past snakes its way into the town, it is up to Aeron alone to stop it.
“I fell in love with her over the course of the novel, and when I finished, I wished I had my own Aeron.”
“Great stories, well written, thoroughly enjoyable. Looking forward to number three.”
“From snow bound mountain rescues to the gentle rescuing of those locked in their own minds, you’ll be spell bound and on the edge of your seat as Aeron does her thing. Loved this — gobbled it up in a few hours (hours when I really should have been sleeping…)–and can’t wait for more.”
“A Romantic comedy worthy of a Hollywood script. .. Definitely a “highly recommended” for those who like a light-hearted romance.”

La Vie en Bleu – Renovating Hearts Series * Book I
Pippa Saunders likes her life as it is. Uncomplicated. She’s engaged to Prince Charming (AKA Doug Fletcher) and she and her best friend Rebecca share a flat and are wonderful underachievers or boring, in Rebecca’s eyes.
A series of events, which sees Pippa take a trip to the local Italian in her pyjamas, threatens to shake her neatly packaged life.
When Doug buys a holiday home in the South of France and hires Pippa’s ‘old friend,’ the mysterious Berne Chamonix, Pippa finds herself face to face with the woman she’s been trying to forget since nineteen.
…A woman who has an uncanny knack of tying her up in knots.
… A woman Doug wants her to work alongside.
Summer in France is poised to take a chisel to her well built up façade.
Not so boring after all…
‘The supporting cast is stellar… I’d have kept reading for Rebecca alone.’
“La Vie en Bleu is an absolutely lovely read. It is well written, humorous and full of excellent human observation combined with an interesting version of the classic re-united lovers romance. It is very different from the Above and Beyond Series, but like all Ms Klaire’s work is extremely well done…
…Definitely a “highly recommended” for those who like a light-hearted romance, I look forward to more of the Romantic Ms Klaire.”
“These are amazing characters and unusual plots….these books are just a joy.”

Untrained Eye – The Above & Beyond Series * Book III
CIG boss Ursula Frei asks Aeron for help to prevent a group of children in the Caprock Academy from becoming victims to a life that created the same scars Frei herself bears. This personal request is complicated by Aeron’s dimmed “burdens” as a consequence of healing her mentor Renee.
To ensure CIG can get involved, Aeron fakes a vision only to find out that her mother, Lilia, has had the same one. So Aeron, Renee and Frei head in under cover.
The problem is that Lilia’s vision is different. Aeron’s faked version sees the three friends pull off the mission, rescue the children and walk away stronger; Lilia’s version sees the three agents implode and their mission unravel under the weight of resentment, arguments and misunderstandings.
Lilia makes the call to let them go in because she believes they can get the children to safety…
… Even if it means one of them gets left behind.
“These are amazing characters and unusual plots. Jody Klaire manages to mix up a thriller crime drama with a psychic whodunit and an ever so slowly burning romance. It’s a wonderful action adventure story for girls. Add in humour, great dialogue, brilliant writing and these books are just a joy.”
The Lock is the key.
Escaping your past isn’t always easy.
Aeron Lorelei gets a vision that her General and close friend Ursula Frei has been captured and seriously hurt but Aeron doesn’t know by who, where and why. All she knows is that Frei is getting weaker and they have to find her… fast.
So Aeron and her commander Renee Black set out on the trail using the only information they have to go on: the memories of Frei’s past which are triggered when Aeron touches a padlock, a padlock that shows the depth of the scars Frei holds inside.
As the memories get more vivid and Aeron’s still dimmed burdens begin to drain her, Renee is faced with losing both the women she adores.
But, the memories begin to point to just why Frei is missing and Renee faces the decision to keep faith in Aeron’s “burdens,” and what her own heart is telling her, or pull Aeron out and lose Frei, her best friend and the woman who once saved her life.
