Jody's Own Wikipedia Entry

Here's Jody's own shot at having a Wikipedia entry - wonderfully showing her mischievous sense of humor:

There's a mystery about American author Jody Scott. Born in Chicago in 1923, daughter of Joe Huguelet who with five brothers founded Huguelet Brothers Garage in 1906 (long a Chicago landmark until demolished in 1977 to make way for a huge multiplex on the Miracle Mile)—Scott (first husband’s name) attended North Park College, Northwestern U. and U.C. Berkeley, put herself through pre-med with a series of menial jobs (sardine packer, cabbage puller, chemist's assistant, model at The Art Institute) and hitchhiked through the U.S., Mexico and Guatemala; lived for five months in Guatemala, wrote novels Passing for Human (Daw), I, Vampire (Ace), Cure It with Honey (Harper) and co-owned (with George Leite) Daliel's Bookstore in Berkeley, host to Henry Miller, Anais Nin and the Beats. Along the way she won an Egar "special award" and barely missed a movie deal or two.

Scott has been lavishly praised—"Wonderful time travel and voice" (Russell Banks), "Many thanks for your work. To be stuck in this body until I died—how would that feel?
