Karen Hudgins’ first completed novel was published in 2001. She writes romantic, character-driven stories often laced mystery or suspense, a touch of history and humor, something mystical, and always a happy ending. Researching places, history, and lines of work through talking with people is fascinating to her.

Northeast Florida is Karen’s home region where she and her husband explore its abundant natural, cultural, and historical features. They feed her writer’s spirit and imagination. She’s a mom and grandmother. Her people-based degree (Behavioral Science) helps her create story people and their conflicts. She’s a dog owner, beach-goer, reader, and movie-watcher and likes a variety of music.

Karen is a member of Romance Writers of America, Ancient City Romance Authors, and the National Association of Professional Women. She has worked on staff for private universities; the most recent, Washington University in St. Louis. She enjoys digital photography and is also a florist. People with vision forever impress her, as do moms and dads who read to their young children.

Karen’s time with writers, aspiring authors, readers, and other industry folk never proves dull. She’s thankful for her writing business life and especially for people who enjoy her stories. She wishes her inkwell never goes dry…
