“The world belongs to those who read.” — Rick Holland
I’m Lindsey Hobson.
I live in Southwest Missouri, a beautiful area known as the Ozarks, with my husband and daughter. We share our home with an elderly dachshund, an adorable rescue pup, and five chickens (well, to be fair, the chickens live outside). Our furry and feathered friends are a constant source of entertainment! When I’m not writing, you can find me at the local bookstore or flea market, camping, canoeing, or at the softball field.
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 and has helped me realize my passion for creating stories. I was thrilled when this story was chosen “Best Picture Book of 2020” by the Missouri Writers’ Guild!
I also like to write fiction for adults. 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.
