- H.R. Hobbs is the pen name of Heather Hobbs, Amazon-bestselling author of a series of compassionate and empowering stories for middle-grade readers.
As an introvert who spent most of middle school with her nose stuck in a book, Heather empathizes with her young readers, and her mission is to ensure that they recognize and relate to her characters’ struggles with typical middle school issues such as belonging, friendship, and bullying. The first two books in her Breaking the Rules series, See Me and Hear Me, have received five-star reviews from Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews in the Young Adult category.
A lifelong learner and teacher with a fascination for people’s stories, Hobbs challenged herself to write in 2015 as a retirement project. She believes we all have a story to tell and encourages writers of all ages to find their voice, speak their truth and tell their story.
Recently, she began art lessons with the hopes of illustrating her own children’s books in the future.
Heather is the mother to three grown sons (who shake their heads at her antics) and grandmother to three little darlings. She resides with her husband in the small prairie town where she was born and raised.
