Allan Hudson was born in Saint John, New Brunswick. Growing up in South Branch he was encouraged to read from an early age by his mother who was a school teacher. He lives in Dieppe with his wife Gloria. He has enjoyed a lifetime of adventure, travel and uses the many experiences as ideas for his writing. Inspired by his favorite author, Bryce Courtenay, who started writing at the age of 55, he also began writing later in life in his mid-fifties. He has recently contributed a short story to an upcoming Anthology titled Autumn Paths. His short stories – The Ship Breakers & Into the Abyss – received Honourable Mention in the New Brunswick Writer’s Federation competition.

He has stories published on commuterlit.com, The Golden Ratio and his blog - South Branch Scribbler.
