My guest today fulfilled a lifelong dream to be a published author at the age of sixty-six. Since that time, she has published six highly regarded novels as well as two cookbooks. Among the many awards her work has garnered is the prestigious International Best Indie Book Award for her fourth work, a contemporary romance entitled Chasing Hope. A strong advocate for new writers, she started a podcast in 2020 called A Writers Life where she shares her experiences and provides tips on writing as well as inspiration and education. A sixth-generation Texan, she still resides in the Piney Woods. A die-hard romantic, her heart-warming stories are filled with strong women, second chances, and happily ever afters. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Nancy Hudgins who writes under the pen name Dana Wayne.
