Over the summer I will be updating author’s details in the Cafe and Bookstore and also sharing their bios, books and recent reviews with you in this series…
Meet Allan Hudson
I live in Eastern Canada where the summers are warm and the snow is deep in the winter.
I married the greatest gal on earth, Gloria, and have a wonderful son Adam, two great stepsons Mark (Georgette) and Chris (Mireille)Young. Three grandchildren Matthieu, Natasha and Damian.
I’m a very happy man.
I love reading. My mother was a school teacher and taught me to read and write when I was young.
I love jazz music, 70s rock and am a HUGE fan of JJ Cale.
I hope that you will enjoy my stories and thank you for your support.

A recent review for Shattered Lives
Jo Naylor has escaped the fall out from her last case as a detective, hoping to find peace and oblivion in Thailand. She misses her old life and her detective partner but is solidly determined to enjoy her freedom.
But fate has a way of sticking its nose into our lives and it isn’t long before her detective hat is back on her head, prompted by the surprise arrival of her old partner, Adam Thorne.
But if he thinks he can get Jo to come back with him, he is out of luck. Jo has the taste of freedom now, and there’s no going back…
I don’t think this will be the last we see of Jo Naylor!

One of the recent reviews for Defined by Others
Defined by Others is a dark tale that makes the reader think about love and relationships. The characters are well drawn, particularly the female characters, and the dialogue is excellent.
The friendship aspect of the novel is well explored and a highlight. While the story is good, the main fascination is following the characters as they adjust to changes and challenges in life at a time when their paths seem to be well set.
With its undercurrent of menace, this is a novel that chimes with our times.
Meet Jean Lee
Jean Lee is a Wisconsin born and bred writer excited to share her Young Adult Fantasy fiction with those who love to find other worlds hidden in the humdrum that surrounds us. Her first novel, Fallen Princeborn: Stolen, is available from Aionios Books. She is also the author of Tales of the River Vine, including the novella Night’s Tooth.
Stories are the fire that warms the soul. They melt fear, ignite hope, and spark relationships like nothing else. I’m honored you seated yourself here by my hearth to enjoy my fiction’s light. Please feel free to visit often, for there are many treasures bizarre and fantastic in my imagination waiting to speak with tongues of flame. Then we can talk about the writers that refuel us, as I do on my site,Jean Lee’s World and the stories that stir us like marshmallow sticks poking a campfire’s embers.

One of the recent reviews for Fallen Princeorn: Chosen
Fallen Princeborn: Chosen was fantastic dark fantasy that revolved around Charlotte and Liam’s growing relationship and trust in each other, their battle with Lady Orna and her minions who somehow has returned with vengeance and blood lust, and Liam’s family who are bigger trouble than Lady Orna. It was about good vs evil, dysfunctional family, betrayal, trust, love, letting go of past, and finding strength in love.
Villians were interesting, not just Lady Orna but Liam’s family as well. I was still puzzled how Lady Orna came back so fast from pit and acquired new kind of power that was deadly. Her incompletes were creepy but even creepier was Liam’s family. This family was full of crazies.
World was well written. It was interesting to read more history of land and water, its people and their powers. Aether created all the magical beings in this world but worst were princeborns and we know more of their crimes in this book. Stellaqui were interesting creatures. I enjoyed reading about them and their old high sage. Celenstines were most powerful of all. By meeting them readers could see what was those magical rings that Lady Orna wore and now other princeborns were wearing.
Overall, Fallen Princeborn: Chosen was intriguing, fast paced and well written adult fantasy with punchy prose, rich world and non-stop action.
Thanks for dropping in today and it would be great if you could share these authors and their books.. thanks Sally.
