Meet the Author - Lindy S. Hudis

Hey readers,

I am pleased to introduce you to a great author, Lindy S. Hudis. She's not only an author but also a filmmaker. Being a busy mom, it is not easy to do it all but here she is inspiring the world. Hudis has a lot more interesting things to share so let's get to the interview and get to know her better! 

To start off this interview, tell us a little about yourself.

First of all, thank you for having me on your blog! Us artistic types need to stick together! Well, I’m a California girl living with my hubby, two teenagers, one dog and four cats. I write when I have the time, being a busy mom and all. I studied acting and creative writing at New York University Tisch School of the Arts. It was a fun time. 

When did you first consider yourself an author? 

I guess when I got my first book, WEEKENDS, published. It was quite a shock after months of rejection letters. I really felt like I had accomplished something. 

What’s your favorite genre to write about? 

Honestly, I like to write in all genres and I consider myself a multi-genre author. To me, I am simply telling a story. 

I read that you are not only an author but also a filmmaker, how does that feel? 

Orsen Welles once said that film is the most emotional medium in the history of the world, and I tend to agree. Books and movies can really take a reader/audience member to another place. I want to be able to make people feel, and to be transported to another time, place, and situation. Film and literature are very much alike in that way. 

Can you tell us more about your latest book? 

HOLLYWOOD UNDERWORLD is the first in a series about Tinseltown and the many lives of the people who live and work there. It’s a crime fiction story. If it were a film it would be considered Film Noir. It’s about a courageous single mom and personal manager who gets help from a very handsome crime boss to find a missing actor client of hers.  

What was your dream as a child? 

To be an actress! I did live that dream for a bit. Back in the 90’s I worked on the television shows SUNSET BEACH, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN and BEVERLY HILLS 90210. I also had a small part in the feature film INDECENT PROPOSAL. That was a fun day of shooting. Then I got married and did the mom thing. I just sort of fell into writing from there. 

If you could have dinner with any three authors, who would it be? 

Judy Blume or Jackie Collins. Both of those super talented ladies inspired me to become a writer.

Are you an early bird or a night owl? 

Early Bird, definitely! I m up at 5:30 am every morning. Cats have to be fed, kids have to get ready for school, and doggie needs to pee. 

Do you prefer watching a movie or reading a book? 


What is your current favorite song? (If you have any)Do you have any pets? If not, would you like to have one? 

Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run. The story of my life!

What is your favorite season? 

I’m a summer girl! I could never live anywhere else other than Southern California - the land of the Endless Summer

Do you have any tips for writers who just began their journey? 

Don’t give up and write a little bit everyday! My father-in-law was the late, great writer Norman Hudis. He was a huge influence on me. He said to write a little bit everyday even it if is just one sentence. At least you would have written something. 

Are you working on anything right now that you would like to share with our readers? 

I have gotten started on the second installment of Hollywood Underworld! I can’t tell you any more secrets!
