Hudson is author of several historical monographs When Death Rode the Rails, Tales of Hell’s Half Acre, Halloween, Murderous Marriages, and fiction such as the short story collection The Bones of Summer, short fiction such as the Madame Delaine series, and is co-author of the novel. The Mound.

She lives with her husband in Norman, Oklahoma and is surrounded by a crowd of imaginary playmates – but don’t tell anyone!
