All About Kay Hudson

Kay lives in the Houston area, where she is currently serving as president of West Houston RWA and treasurer of Houston Bay Area RWA (she needs to work on saying "no"). She writes humorous paranormal romance, reads pretty much everything, and wishes she had more time for both, since she works full time and spends a lot of time commuting.
