Important Auction!!!!!

Janis Reams Hudson has done so much for the Romance Writers of America.  I’d like to see us do something back for her.  Big time. All the deets are on this page, but check out the goodies you can win in The Deadline Dame auction!


Janis in healthier days

Janis Reams Hudson is a long-time member of RWA and a founding member of OKRWA. As a member, she has served on both chapter and national level in many capacities, including president for both. Her accomplishments and leadership as an RWA and OKRWA member resulted in RWA making her its 1999 Emma Merritt National Service Award winner. Janis is also an award-winning author of over 35 titles. She brings her skills as a writer, knowledge as a published author, and savvy as a professional to each endeavor she is part of, and fellow romance authors can attest to the incredible mentoring Janis has provided over the years.

Now Janis needs our help. She has advanced, end-stage emphysema and is, at the present time, on a waiting list for a lung transplant. Recently, she was in the hospital concerning the lung transplant. The medicine she was prescribed caused a serious reaction, and Janis almost died. She spent many days in ICU, but she held on and was eventually allowed to return home. However, since then, she has been back in the hospital again, trying to get oxygen levels at a point where she can be home and back on the portable ventilator, or her liquid oxygen system. Her condition continues to worsen with each passing month. Because of her condition and these extended stays in the hospital, her medical bills are skyrocketing. This website is a conduit for getting donations to Janis’ medical expenses. Below, you will find links to items generously donated by individuals and groups. People can place bids on the items on eBay.

We will add more as we receive them.

For more information about donating, please contact Peggy Beaty. For more about Janis, read “The Full Story.”

All funds go directly to Janis Reams Hudson for medical-related costs minus only the fees charged by eBay. Though OKRWA members are volunteering their time to help raise funds for Janis, neither OKRWA nor these people are profiting in any way from this endeavor.


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
