Jack Wodhams (1931 – 2017) was an English-born science fiction writer who lived in Australia from 1955 until his death. He also wrote as Trudy Rose and Caroline Edwards. Wodhams was born on 3 September 1931 in Dagenham, London and died on 3 August 2017.
He was first published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact in 1967 with the story There Is a Crooked Man. He was largely known for the kind of "problem oriented" stories that Analog itself is known for. These stories have been called "generally clever and often ingenious" and good on military matters, but occasionally criticised as facetious. From 1970 to 1982 he was nominated for the Ditmar Award several times.
