Author Info


     Hodum studied in the University of Bolivariana and the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia and traveled extensively through this Andean country, as well as Ecuador and Peru. His adventures during those years can be found in his memoir, Conversations on La Playa: A Gringo’s Tales of Medellin. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     The author’s many trips to Spain inspired him to walk the pilgrimage route and investigate the life of Saint James the Greater. His work Pilgrims’ Steps: A Search for Spain’s Santiago and An Examination of His Way explores the life of Saint James and examines the history of his ancient pilgrimage route. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     Catching Winds North, a collection of the author’s poetry, celebrates the seasons and beauty of Long Island, nature’s mysteries, and the joys and conundrums of life. His reflections on his life in Colombia, and travels to Ecuador, Peru, and Nicaragua appear in the original Spanish with English translations. Available through iUniverse and Amazon.

     Hodum’s most recent work, Bone Dust, is a collection of tales of horror, suspense, magical realism, and the supernatural world. The author’s personal experiences with the inexplicable find expression in these short stories with psychological twists and frights that highlight the unsettling lives of characters that inhabit eerie and sinister worlds.
