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!

Although I enjoy writing for all ages, I believe children’s books hold a special kind of magic. My greatest hope is that somewhere there is a child with their head under the covers, flashlight in hand, reading my book past their bedtime.

I am a member of the Society of Children’s Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Ozarks Writers League, the Missouri Writer’s Guild, and my local writer’s guild.
