About the Author Kim Hudson

Kim Hudson grew up in the Yukon, as a Hero's daughter with a Cinderella Complex. She began exploring her feminine side as she raised two daughters, studied Writing for Film & Television at Vancouver Film School, and took courses on mythology, feminism and psychology including Jungian Odyssey in Switzerland.  Her theory was developed by closely observing the archetypal expressions in movies, music, TV shows, ads, and stories.  The Virgin's Promise is Hudson's first book.
