“The world belongs to those who read.”

I’m Lindsey Hobson.

I live in Southwest Missouri, in a beautiful area known as the Ozarks with my husband and daughter. We share our home with an elderly dachshund and an adorable rescue pup. I have always loved reading and creating stories, but never seriously considered writing a book until my daughter was born. Reading to her reignited my passion for stories.

In January of 2020, I self-published a picture book, “Blossom’s Wish” through Amazon. This book is a version of a story I used to tell my daughter before bed. Self-publishing this book was such a rewarding experience. I was thrilled when this story was chosen “Best Picture Book of 2020” by the Missouri Writers’ Guild!

I have also written several fictional short stories for adult readers. One of my short stories, “The Mother”, appears in the 2019 anthology, “Seasons of the Four States”, available on Amazon. Another short story titled, “Alley Springs, Population 1313” and a poem titled, “The Mirror”, were both selected for publication in the 40th Anniversary Edition of The Crowder Quill, a magazine published by Crowder College.
