Class of 2020: Marketing student writes two children’s books

For Helen Hudgens, Georgia College was the only public university that could meet her standards.

“I really like the feel of a liberal arts college, and it’s the only public liberal arts college in Georgia,” the Atlanta native said.

During her time as a GC student, she plans to participate in intramural softball and get involved with other organizations, continuing a tradition she started in high school.

Hudgens played varsity softball and was involved in several clubs at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School. The scholar-athlete also used her skills to write two children’s books.

“I babysat, and I noticed that the kids had one book they loved to read every single night. I wanted to write a book just like that,” she said.

"The Adventures of Snake and Mouse” series focuses on the unlikely friendship between a snake and a mouse. In one book, Snake and Mouse are set in a circus. In the other, the best friends make an attempt at underwater baseball.

Targeting three to eight-year-old children, Hudgen’s work has been well received by several audiences. She is currently seeking to be published.

Although she has a love for writing, Hudgens plans to pursue a degree in marketing. Her interest was fueled by working alongside marketing professionals. Seeing their success inspired her to pursue the same studies.
