About Jnana Hodson

It’s been a while since I’ve been known by my Hawaiian shirts and tennis shoes, at least in summer. Winters in New England are another matter.
For four decades, my career in daily journalism paid the bills while I wrote poetry and fiction on the side. More than a thousand of those works have appeared in literary journals around the globe.
My name, bestowed on me when I dwelled in a yoga ashram in the early ‘70s, is usually pronounced “Jah-nah,” a Sanskrit word that becomes “gnosis” in Greek and “knowing” in English. After two decades of residing in a small coastal city near both the Atlantic shoreline and the White Mountains northeast of Boston, the time's come to downsize. These days I'm centered in a remote fishing village with an active arts scene on an island in Maine. From our window we can even watch the occasional traffic in neighboring New Brunswick or lobster boats making their rounds.
My wife and two daughters have prompted more of my novels than they’d ever imagine, mostly through their questions about my past and their translations of contemporary social culture and tech advances for a geezer like me. Rest assured, they’re not like any of my fictional characters, apart from being geniuses in the kitchen.
Other than that, I'm hard to pigeonhole -- and so is my writing.

About the Series: Freakin' Free Spirits
This freewheeling cycle pivots around a daughter's obsessive trips into her father's past after he vanishes in an avalanche when she's just 11. What she uncovers may seem a freaky world away from her own, as her sarcastic comments underscore, but each step points fatefully to her unique extended family and herself. Each of the four volumes stands on its own as he moves by steps eastward and then back to Indiana, where Cassia is born, grows up, and brings to light her own identity. Read them in any order you wish.

Reviews of Pit-a-Pat High Jinks by Jnana Hodson

Reading Jnana Hodson's flashbacks to another time in American history is delightful and took me back to the days I too lived the life "If it feels good, do it" Jnana takes me into his world of everything hip and earthy, where surrounding oneself in nature and simpler times during the hippie revolution. All I can do is rush to his site and order the next book. The peace and love generation is still alive in all of us and we haven't sold out our values cast in the seventies and beyond. It's a book you can give your friends and your son and daughter so to give them a slice of how life used to be during the cultural revolution, a time when men and women were equal and expressing physical love toward more than one person gave us insights that stretched our awareness. Our hearts opened up and we learned that life is more than just work, that living the hippie lifestyle can be rewarding and enduring. I've brought my values with me into old age and it hasn't disappointed me ever.
Thank you Jnana for bringing me back in time with your time machine of your books. Diane DeVillers Eugene Oregon
