Hi, I’m J.S. Hudson, and I’ve been writing my whole life. I began scribbling with crayons as a toddler, and a few years later I became a rapper. I wrote plenty of rap lyrics; first about things I had never done, then about things I regretted doing. From there, I produced the first few chapters of many novels that went on to fill up a heck of a lot of wastebaskets… that is, until I got the idea to do something radical in my church (I know I’m skipping a lot, but bear with me). I had gotten an idea to write a rap musical called School of Hard Knocks, and with the help of my friends, we took it on tour throughout Northern California and to Colorado, performing it everywhere from auditoriums to Indian reservations. Shortly after that, I got this insane idea to put an 8’ tall, 160’ long evangelistic banner across a freeway in my city. The banner sparked a yearly worldwide event called Take Your City (I’m not sure if there’s still much media online about it, but google it and let me know). A year later, inspiration hit me again. I was moved to combine the rap musical and the evangelistic event into my first novel: Revolution Now – The Beginning, and that’s the moment when I felt a calling on my life to become an author. Like Eric Liddell felt God’s favor when he ran, I feel God’s favor when I write. Today, I’m an author and public speaker, a minister in my church, a teacher at a Bible college, and the proud father of two boys, given to me by the prettiest Salvadorian girl to ever conduct a counseling session. I could go on and on about all that God has blessed me with, but I really just hope that you read my books. There’s a lot of blood sweat and tears on those pages. Also, send me an email if you feel like talking back to me.
