More About the Author

Anything can set her off: an old house, the way wind rustles the leaves overhead or a whisper of an event decades old.

Marilyn A. Hudson blends all her experiences and training together in fashioning tales and stories that capture the imagination. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, with degrees in History and Information/Library Studies, Marilyn A. Hudson has been a public library, school library, and academic library professional. Along the way, she also learned to tell stories as a professional storyteller and began publishing tales of history and her imagination.

She has been a featured performer at such venues as the Overholser Mansion, Lawton Community Theater, Paracon, Tejas Storytelling Festival, Oklahoma City Storytelling Festival, Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival and many libraries and schools.

Her newest title is a fantasy of raw edged battle against human and supernatural forces. The Sword of Anath hopes to set the stage for a series of others covering the battles, villains, and triumphs of a mythic warrior woman. Her latest true history book is a look at some unsolved crimes of a horrific nature, Into Oblivion: Murders, Missing Persons, and Mysteries.

She is also the author of The Bones of Summer: A collection of chilling tales, When Death Rode the Rails: Strange Deaths Along Oklahoma Railroads, Tales of Hell's Half Acre, Those Pesky Verses of Paul, Noel Brooks: A Life Shining and Burning, Murderous Marriages, and co-author of the novel, The Mound.

Format: Paperback
This book is a balanced, sympathetic, yet fair account of the life of a man who was born in the Coal mining country of central England, joined the Wesley Methodist Church, served a clergy there at a young age and joined the Pentecostal Movement in England. Working with George Jeffreys he wrote the biography of that evangelist. He pastored in Ireland, Scotland, and England. In the early 1950's he joined with the American based Pentecostal Holiness Church,based in Georgia, due to its roots in Weslyan holiness theology - becoming a leader of the British work. He wrote articles, books, taught Bible classes and served as president of two Bible College, one in Bristol and one in Canada. Deeply commited to the theology of holiness and Pentecostalism he was also a lover of scholarship. Perfect for collections of 20th century religious biography, 20th century church history, Pentecostalism, or holiness studies.
