Bob Hocking - Author

With several published efforts currently in print, this is the area of the web site to check out if you are interested in Bob's books, appearances and other corners of his professional work.



Since the first days back in 2003, the In My Backpack site has grown into a bit of a community. Here you can find general writing from Bob... the monthly Now Playing journal... ComplemenTerry Designs... Local Friends for Local Business... and more.
