Hudson grew up on a Wyoming ranch. During high school and college, her writing was featured in various Wyoming newspapers as well as national magazines. After college and marriage, she began writing full-time and sold her first suspense novel in 1979. She sold three more suspense novels during the '80s before the bottom dropped out of the publishing market and she lost her literary agent to cancer. Hudson divorced and accepted a job in cable advertising with AR Communications in south central Minnesota.
Over the next decade, she lived and worked in New Ulm and Hutchinson. In 1990, she met her second husband Thomas Dormady of Sleepy Eye. They lived in Morgan, until 2005 when Dormady died after a long siege with cancer. During the following year, romance and marriage brought Mrs. Hudson and her current husband, Adam Hudson, back to their roots in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
