About Me

I’ve been writing books for a long, long time. My intentions when I started out were to write non-fiction, something along pop-psych lines, but after I spent four years working on my doctorate and immersed in academic stuff, I longed to read escapist fiction. A friend who was an independent book seller dragged me kicking and screaming to romance. I learned that I loved it. Here’s a bio that fills in more stuff that you’d ever want to know about me:

A fifth generation Texan, Jan Hudson is the author of over thirty romance novels and has won numerous awards and accolades, including the Golden Heart and the coveted RITA Award by the Romance Writers of America. She writes the kind of fast-paced stories she loves to read: those laced with humor, fantasy, and adventure, with bold characters who reach beyond the mundane and celebrate life. Her most memorable adventure was riding a camel to the Sphinx and climbing into the sarcophagus in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. Her favorite food is fudge-with pecans. And Chunky Monkey is the best ice cream in the world-except maybe for a dish of fantastic pistachio she once had in Athens. In her spare time she likes to think briefly about exercising or cleaning closets.

As her alter-ego, Dr. Janece O. Hudson, she is a former licensed psychologist, college teacher, and hypnotist. She’s considered an expert in the field of dreams and has written a non-fiction book, “Into Your Dreams” about learning to interpret your unique dream symbols.

I love stories that are set in Texas, and have humor as well as romance, and your books have it all! I hope you keep writing for years to come!!! Also, it would be great if you could publish your older books in ebook format!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank You,

    • Hi, Kathy! Great to hear from you. I’ve been away on vacation, then recovering from vacation and trying to get back into the swing of things. I’m delighted that you like my books. I am publishing some of my older books as ebooks. All of the ones that I’ve updated so far are starred on my list of books on my website (www.janhudson.com) and more will be coming soon. I haven’t announced it yet, but SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY will be free on Amazon Kindle for 5 days beginning July 13. Check it out. I’ve rewritten it so that it’s the third book in my Struck by Lightning Trilogy. I’m going to try to publish several more this year and next.

      I’m planning to start a newsletter soon. If you’d like to be on that list, let me know.
      Warmest regards,
      Jan Hudson

  2. Hi Jan, I LOVE your books. I have them in paperback and when they come out in e-book, I have to get them for my kindle so I can have them on hand whenever I need a pick me up. They’re so funny and sexy and the men, yum, yum. I want to come to Texas if only to meet the men who are described in your books, LOL.

    Can you please tell me if Dream of Me, Angel Hours, Sugar Ann and A Hitch in Heaven will be coming out in e-book sometime as well. PLEASE say yes.

    Thank you for all the enjoyable hours I’ve had reading your stories. I can’t pick a favourite but Slightly Shady, Step into My Parlor, Big and Bright, The Right Moves and Dream of Me would probably be right up there.


    • Hi, Linda. Your comment spurred me on to getting DREAM OF ME into digital form. ANGEL HOURS will be next. It’s a tedious job, so it may take a while. Thanks for writing!
