Fun Stuff

 

 

 

Daniella Blackwood fought Apaches, the Army, her own family.

She fought hatred, prejudice, jealousy and greed.

She fought for solitude, for peace.  For her very life.

But she could not fight the love in Travis Colton's eyes.

Apache Magic

Book 1 of the Award Winning Apache-Colton Series

 

 

Romance novelist Janis Reams Hudson was born in California, grew up in Colorado, lived in Texas, but has called central Oklahoma home for most of her adult life. Janis worked for fifteen years in local television in the Oklahoma City and Corpus Christi, Texas, markets. After writing for seven years, during which she left television and completed seven novels, Janis finally made her first sale in September, 1990. The book was FOSTER LOVE, which sold to Meteor Publishing for their Kismet line of short contemporary romances.  Since the book’s publication in February, 1991, FOSTER LOVE has won several major book awards, including the prestigious National Readers’ Choice Award for Best Short Contemporary Romance of 1991, Best Kismet of the Year from Romantic Times, Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence for Best Short Contemporary of the Year, and was a RITA finalist for Best First Book from the Romance Writers of America.

Within two and a half years of making that first sale, Janis sold twenty-two novels, both contemporary and historical romances.  (She didn't write them that fast, but she sold them.  Then she had to write her fingers to the bone, but you'll never hear her complain!)  Her books have appeared on the romance best-seller lists of Waldenbooks, B. Dalton, and Bookrak, have been nominated for numerous awards, and have earned a total of six major book awards.

What little time she does not spend writing and researching her next book Janis spends helping other writers and volunteering her time to various writers’ organizations.  She maintains professional memberships in Romance Writers of America, where she served six years on the national board of directors (including two as President/CEO), and in Oklahoma Romance Writers of America, which she helped found.

Janis's writing career got put on hold while she dealt with the ramifications of smoking, namely, a lung transplant.  It is taking her much longer than she would like to regain her health and her ability to focus on her writing, but she's gradually getting there.  Hence, this updated website.

To date she has 40 novels and one novella to her credit, with more in the works.

Janis lives in Oklahoma City with her husband Ron and their two dogs, both Lab mixes, named Pookie and Buttercup.
