Welcome to The Re-Read: bonus episodes where we chat with previous Better Words guests and catch up on what's happened since they joined us on the pod.

Dr Jodi McAlister is a romance author and romance scholar. Her latest novel is Not Here To Make Friends.

Listen to our previous chat with Jodi here.

In this interview, we chat about:

  • The complex reality TV world Jodi created across her rom-com trilogy, including exploring the series 'villains' in the final book
  • Writing the third book in dual perspective and why this took Jodi by surprise (and why it was 'harder than all six of my previous books combined')
  • Could Love Island inspire another series in the future?
  • How Jodi planned the series, including plotting a season of a fictional dating show
  • Jodi's next romance series and upcoming academic projects

Not Here to Make Friends is available now in Australia, along with Jodi's other books.
