Parker Hudson

Speaker

Parker Hudson and his wife live in Atlanta with the joys and challenges of a large family. His day job is in the investment real estate business but on the side he has been researching and writing about faith, government and business for over twenty years, including two novels and one anthology of short stories.
After attending London School of Economics as a Marshall Scholar (1968-70), Parker served for three years as the Communications and Intelligence Officer on the USS Wainwright (CG-28), based in Charleston, S.C. Since then he’s logged a lot of years in all aspects of commercial and investment real estate, in both the U.S. and Russia. Parenting, grandparenting, and writing are his passions.

Parker likes the power of good fiction, particularly Christian fiction, because it engages the whole person–intellect, emotion, spirit. The reader becomes caught up in the characters and the events, and is forced to consider issues and outcomes that go beyond everyday facts and figures. Fiction based on real truth can be transformational.
